GOLDEN WISDOM

A farmer went to the field one day to cultivate.

During the work, he glanced at the mango tree and saw a big ripe mango he plucked it.

An idea occurred to him not to eat this mango, but to take it home to his wife whom he loves so much, even though he was starving.

When he got home, he called his wife and gave her the mango to show her his love.

Very happy with this precious gift, the woman thought directly of her child who had gone to school.

She took the mango, thanked her husband sincerely and reassured him that she would eat it afterwards.

The woman hid the mango and decided to give it to her son as soon as he returns from school to show him her love.

As soon as the child came back from school, the mother gave him this mango with a lot of joy in her heart.

The child thanked his mother warmly for this precious gift and told his mother that he would eat it later.

He too resolved to hide this mango and make a surprise gift to his father who pays his school fees, believing that the Dad knows nothing about this mango.

In the evening while everyone was eating the family meal, the child said to his father:

“One minute dad, I will bring you a present because I love you so much”.

He ran to his room, took the mango and gave it to his father.

He was surprised to see the same mango he had given to his beloved wife returned back to him again.

Without any comment, he asked for a knife and shared it equally among the three of them (himself, his wife and his child).

They all ate this mango with a lot of joy.

That’s how love works.

When you give love, it comes back to you in another way, because love is the most extraordinary force that governs the universe of God.

Let’s show love unconditionally to people we get in contact with.

Show love without expecting anything in return

This is a time/ season to show love.

COMMON SENSE

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

  • Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
  • Why the early bird gets the worm;
  • Life isn’t always fair;
  • And maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death,
-by his parents, Truth and Trust,
-by his wife, Discretion,
-by his daughter, Responsibility,
-and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 5 stepbrothers;

  • I Know My Rights
  • I Want It Now
  • Someone Else Is To Blame
  • I’m A Victim
  • Pay me for Doing Nothing

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing
