Be Thankful To God For What He Has Given us
A building construction work was going on.
Lot of poor labourer’s were working there and their small children used to hold onto one another’s shirt and play train-train.
Someone would become the engine and others would become bogies.
Every day these children used to take turns, becoming the engine and bogies .
But there was one small boy wearing only a half pant who used to hold one small green cloth in his hand and become the guard daily.
So , once I went and asked him, Don’t you also wish to become an engine or a bogie some time?
He softly replied , Sir , I don’t have a shirt to wear. So how will the other children catch me to make the train?
I could see the slight wetness in his eyes..
But , It gave me a great lesson….!
He could have cried and sat at home and abused his parents for not affording to buy him a shirt.
Instead he chose another way to play and enjoy himself…!
In life, we don’t get all things we desire and we keep complaining…
Life is like that ….!
We need to make it beautiful and be thankful to God for what He has given us.
