THE NAKED TRUTH OF LIFE There was a man with four wives. He loved his fourth wife the most and took great care of her and gave her the best. He also loved his third wife and always wanted to show her off to his friends. However, he always had a fear that she might runaway with some other man. He loved his second wife too. Whenever he faced some problems, he always turned to his second wife and she would always help him out. He did not love his first wife though she loved him deeply, was very loyal to him and took great care of him. One day the man fell very ill and knew that he is going to die soon. He told himself, "I have four wives. I will take one of them along with me when I die to keep me company in my death." Thus, he asked the fourth wife to die along with him and keep him company. "No way!" she replied and walked away without another word. He asked his third wife. She said "Life is so good over here. I'm going to remarry when you die" He then asked his second wife. She said "I'm Sorry. I can't help you this time around. At the most I can only accompany you till your grave." By now his heart sank and he turned cold. Then a voice called out: "I'll go with you. I'll follow you no matter where you go." The man looked up and there was his first wife. She was so skinny, almost like she suffered from malnutrition. Greatly grieved, the man said, "I should have taken much better care of you while I could have!" Actually, we all have four wives in our lives. a. The fourth wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it'll leave us when we die. b. The third wife is our possession, status and wealth. When we die, they go to others. c. The second wife is our family and friends. No matter how close they had been there for us when we're alive, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave. d. The first wife is our soul, neglected in our pursuit of material wealth and pleasure. It is actually the only thing that follows us wherever we go. Always take care of your soul. One of the best messages I have received Pass it on..... Beautiful message.
A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package. What food might this contain?” The mouse wondered – he was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap. Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning: There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!” The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, “Mr.Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it.” The mouse turned to the goat and told him, “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!” The goat sympathized, but said, “I am so very sorry, Mr.Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured you are in my prayers.” The mouse turned to the cow and said “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!” The cow said, “Wow, Mr. Mouse. I’m sorry for you, but it’s no skin off my nose.” So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer’s mousetrap alone. That very night a sound was heard throughout the house – like the sound of a mousetrap catching its prey. The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught. The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital , and she returned home with a fever. Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his matchet to the farmyard for the soup’s main ingredient. But his wife’s sickness continued, so friends and neighbours came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the goat. The farmer’s wife did not get well; she died. So many people came for her funeral, the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them. The mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the wall with great sadness. MORAL LESSON So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and think it doesn’t concern you, remember when one of us is threatened, we are all at risk. We are all involved in this amazing journey called life. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another. Each of us may not be connected through a blood line, we may not even be friends. But we are all connected through humanity and God’s love - Remember - Each of us is a vital thread in another person's tapestry. Our lives are woven together for a reason. True and lesson learnt :let's always give each other ashoulder to lean on.
Acts 17:25 Esther it is he who gives to everyone life and breath and everything._ GOD GIVES EVERYTHING The most humble thing to know is that God is always in control of our lives. >> God starts by giving us life. He created us to know him to love him and serve him. This is a great gift. >> He provides for our needs both physical nad spiritual. We can never lack when we have him at our side. >> He gives us moments of rejoicing. Thus we ought to always be happy in life. >> He at times He gives us moments of suffering. The suffering is not a result of punishment but at times suffering bring us closer to God. >> This day, I believe God will provide for what you and I are praying for. Be it financial breakthrough, job, family... God will provide. Dear Lord, as we live to love and serve you, give us the joy of knowing that from you we can have everything good that we pray for. Amen
