CHILDREN LEARN WHAT THEY LIVE

Children Learn What They Live
Dorothy Law Nolte

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.

If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.

If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.

If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.

If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.

If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.

If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.

If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.

If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.

If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.

If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.

If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.

If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.

If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.

If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.

If children live with fairness, they learn justice.

If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.

If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.

If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place to live in.

THE BURNING HUT

The Burning Hut

The only survivor of a ship wreck was washed up

on a small, un-inhabited island. He prayed feverishly

to The Almighty to save him, & every day he scanned
the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming.

Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut

out of driftwood of ship to protect him from the elements,

& to store his few possessions.

But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived

home & found his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up

to the sky. The worst had happened; everything was lost.

He was stunned with grief & anger. “ohhh……… Almighty, how

Could you do this to me……!” he cried a lot whole night &

with shivering went to sleep below the open sky.

Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the

sound of a ship that was approaching the island.

It had come to rescue him.

“How did you know I was here?” asked the weary man

of his rescuers.
“We saw your smoke signal,” they replied.

Moral of the story :
It is easy to get discouraged when things are going bad.

But we shouldn’t lose heart, because The Almighty is at work in

our lives, even in the midst of pain & suffering…………

Remember, next time when your little hut is burning

to the ground—-it just may be a smoke signal…..,

that summons the grace of The Almighty……

The most important thing in any prayer is not –

what we say to The Amighty……..,but what The Almighty replies to us.

We are about to pray & then hurry up to go away..

Without giving HIM, chance to answer our queries…….

So don’t loose Hope…..Have Faith in The Almighty…..

& Be Positive always, Just try & work hard,

you will definitely succeed in making……

your dreams come true one day.
