Small ‘sins’, hardly noticed by many, are the most deadly to your spiritual life.
Avoid excuses for not praying and allotting few moments of your day to your Creator.
Sins of omission are just as deadly as sins of commission.
Gossiping and small lies, are committed more frequently and are deadly.
Mind those little compromises that you do daily. They are the ones that will bring your downfall.
Successful people have two things on their lips, “Smile and silence”.
Smile can solve problems, while
Silence can avoid problems.
Sugar and salt may be mixed together
but ants reject the salt and carry away only the sugar.
Select the right people in life and make your life better and sweeter.
If you failed to achieve your dreams, change your ways not your Creator.
Remember, trees change their leaves, not their roots.
You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks at you.
Haters will see you walking on water and say it’s because you can’t swim.
Even if you dance on water, Your enemies will accuse you of raising dust.
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your own hands.
Remember Don’t ever wrestle with a pig. You’ll both get dirty, but the pig will enjoy it.
LESSONS FROM CHINESE PRESIDENT
President Xi Jing Peng of China said:
As a small child , I was very selfish, always grabbing the best for myself.
Slowly, everyone left me and I had no friends. I didn’t think it was my fault and I criticized others.
But my father gave me 3 sentences to help me in life.
One day, my father cooked 2 bowls of noodles and put them on the table. One had an egg on top while the other bowl had none on top.
Then he asked me to choose a bowl of noodles.
Because eggs were hard to come by those days, I chose the bowl with egg!
I was congratulating myself on my wise choice/decision and decided to wallop the egg. To my surprise, I saw that my father’s bowl of noodles had two eggs at the bottom beneath the noodles!
With much regret, I scolded myself for being too hasty in my decision.
My father smiled and taught me to remember that what your eyes see may not be true.
He added that, If you make a habit of taking advantage of people, you will end up losing.
The next day, my father again cooked 2 bowls of noodles: one bowl with an egg on top and the other bowl with no egg on top.
Again, he asked to choose the bowl I wanted.
This time, I felt smarter so I chose the bowl without any egg on top.
Hmmmmmm to my surprise, there was not even a single egg at the bottom of the bowl!
Again, my father smiled and said to me, My child, you must not always rely on experiences because sometimes, life can cheat you or play tricks on you.
Never be too annoyed or sad, with situations, just treat experience as learning a lesson that cannot be gotten from any textbooks.
The third day, my father again cooked 2 bowls of noodles, one bowl with an egg on top and the other with no egg on top.
He asked me to choose the bowl i wanted. But this time, I told my father, Dad, you choose first. You are the head of the family and you contribute the most to the family.
My father was very happy and he chose for me.
He chose the bowl with one egg on top. But as I ate my bowl of noodles, to my surprise, there were two eggs at the bottom of the bowl.
My father smiled at me with love in his eyes. He said, my child, you must remember that when you think for the good of others, good things will always naturally happen to you.
Learn to put others first
