My aunt mailed me this beautiful message.
A Construction Supervisor from 16th Floor of a Building was calling a Worker on Ground Floor.
Because of noise the Worker did not hear his Call. To draw Attention,the Supervisor threw a 10 Rupee Note in Front of Worker. He picked up the Note, put it in His Pocket & Continued to Work. Again to Draw Attention the Supervisor threw 500 Rupee Note & the Worker did the same. Now the Supervisor picked a small Stone & threw on the Worker. The Stone hit the Worker. This time the Worker looked Up & the Supervisor Communicated with Him.
This Story is same as to our 'LIFE'... God from Up, wants to Communicate with Us, but We are Busy doing our Worldly Jobs. Then, he give Us Small Gifts & Big Gifts.
We just keep them
without looking from Where We Got it. We are the Same.
Just keeping the gifts without Thanking him, We just say We are LUCKY.
And when we are Hit with a Small Stone, which We call PROBLEMS, then only We look Up & Communicate with him.
It is so true, isn't it? It is rightly said that "God gives and forgives, we get and forget". And even if you don't believe in God think of it this way: In life if something good happens, we take the credit for ourselves and tell that we deserve to get those good things. But if some problems come on our way do we just keep quiet and think that we deserve it too? No we don't. We are quick to point out reasons for our failure and blame others and the situation. When we are happy we don't want to give credit to someone who directly or indirectly might have helped us. We just give the credit to yourselves- just like the worker pocketed the money. But it is only in troubles that we come out of the little world that we have created and look for someone who can help us out. If we want someone to help us out when in need, can we not be that someone to help others when they need? And do we need stones to remind us of God or others? I think we could do that with gifts as well, don't you?
