A blind man sat on the steps of a public building with a hat by his feet. He had propped up a sign nearby which said, “I am blind, please help.”
There were only a few coins in the hat. A man walking by 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 man.
That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came by to see how things were doing. The blind man recognized his voice and asked, “Did you change 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.”
He had written, “Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it.”
Moral of the Story: Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively. When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.
You can buy friendship with friendship, but never with dollars.
Thought for the day
Matthew 24:35, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away”
The only item on the planet that will last is the Word of God. Everything else will burn up, because truth is eternal.
