The Parable of the Pencil
"FIRST - You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone's hand."
"SECOND - You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but this is required if you are to become a better pencil."
"THIRD - You have the ability to correct any mistakes you might make."
"FOURTH - The most important part of you will always be what's inside."
"FIFTH - No matter what the condition, you must continue to write. You must always leave a clear, legible mark no matter how difficult the situation."
The pencil understood, promising to remember, and went into the box fully understanding its Maker's purpose.
Everyone is like a pencil ... Created by the Maker for a special purpose.
YOU WERE MADE TO DO GREAT THINGS!
(Write your own destiny!)
