A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with
a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said:
“I am blind, please help.” There were only a
few coins in the hat. A man was walking by.
He took a few coins from his pocket and
dropped them into the hat. He then took the
sign, turned it around, and wrote some
words. He put the sign back so that everyone
who walked by would see the new words.
Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more
people were giving money to the blind boy.
That afternoon the man who had changed
the sign came to see how things were. The
boy recognized his footsteps and asked,
“Were you the one who changed my sign this
morning? What did you write? “The man said,
“I only wrote the truth. I said what you said
but in a different way. “I wrote: ‘Today is a
beautiful day; but I cannot see it.” Both signs
told people that the boy was blind. But the
first sign simply said the boy was blind. The
second sign reminded people how fortunate
they were to have their sight.
Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?
Moral of the Story: Be thankful for
what you have. BE CREATIVE. BE INNOVATIVE.
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. When life
gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that
you have 1000 reasons to smile. LEARN from your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without
fear. Keep the FAITH and drop the FEAR. It’s a
beautiful thing to see a person smiling. But
even more beautiful is knowing that you are
the reason for the smile! Be the reason why someone smiles today.
Faith is not about
everything turning out RIGHT. Faith is about
being RIGHT no matter how things turn out.
