Parable of the Pencil


Pencil

The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box.  “There are five things you need to know”, he told the pencil, “before I send you out into the world. Always remember and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be.”

One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone’s hand.

Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you’ll need it to become a better pencil.

Three: You will be able to correct mistakes you make.

Four: The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.

Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write.

The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart.

Now replacing the pencil with you; always remember and never forget, and you will become the best person you can be.

One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in God’s hand, and allow other human beings access to you for the many gifts you possess.

Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time by going through various problems, but you’ll need it to become a stronger person.

Three: You will be able to correct mistakes you might make, or grow through them.

Four: The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.

Five: On every surface you walk, you must leave your mark.  No matter what your situation, you must continue to serve God in everything.

  1. Great parable sis! By the way talk about pencil we also can’t forget about the eraser. Pencil always gives us a chance to use the eraser to correct the wrong words. Therefore, correct our mistakes are not a bad thing. It will help us always on the right path. 🙂
