The Stones of Life
A construction supervisor from the 16th floor of a building was calling a worker who was on the ground floor. But because of the noise, the worker did not hear his call.
To draw his attention, the supervisor threw a $50 note down in front of the worker. He picked up the note, kept it in his pocket and continued his work. Again, the supervisor threw a $100 note and the man this time quickly picked it and kept it in his pocket.
Now exasperated, the supervisor picked a small stone nearby and threw it at the man. The stone hit him, and this time he looked up, so the supervisor was now able to communicate with him.
Now think about this… God wants to communicate with us, but we are usually too busy doing our things to pay Him attention.
Then, He gives us small gifts and big gifts to draw our attention to Himself, but we only keep them and continue with our life. We keep on enjoying the gifts He keeps throwing at us without much of a thank you. At most, we just say: we are have been blessed.
But, when we are hit with a small stone which, we call problems, then we remember God. That is when we look up to pray and communicate with Him. God gives and forgives, while we get and forget. It’s time we changed our attitude.
Don’t wait for stones to be thrown at you before you realise you have to commune with God. Always remember Him in your everyday endeavours and make it a duty to always say, “Thank You, Lord!”
