Saturday 9th March 2019 Prayer Devotion
A Story Received From Whats App Contact
Scripture Reading:- Genesis 13:1-18
Topic:- Don’t Be A Manner-less Person
Text:- Genesis 13:15
A very pretty Woman entered into an Aircraft and started looking for her seat. She noticed that her seat was next to a person with both hands missing. She hesitated to sit next to him.
That pretty Woman told the air Hostess that she can’t sit in her assigned seat and travel comfortably sitting next to that Harmless person; and asked the air Hostess to change her seat. The air Hostess inquired, “Madam, may I know your reason”? The pretty Lady replied: “I don’t like such people. I don’t like sitting next to such people while traveling.”
The air Hostess was shocked to hear this from this Lady who in appearance looked like a well mannered and polite person. The ‘pretty’ Lady again told the air Hostess that she did not want that seat and demanded that they find her a different seat.
The air Hostess asked the Lady to be patient for a while and said she will try her best to accommodate her request and looked around for an empty seat. She couldn’t find any.
The air Hostess returned to the Lady and said, “Madam! All the seats in this Economy class are full. But then for the comfort of our Travelers, it is our Policy to satisfy them to our utmost. So, I will talk to the Captain and kindly be patient a bit longer.” Saying so, she went to see the Captain.
After some time she returned and said to the Lady, “Madam! We are very sorry for the discomfort to you. In this entire Aircraft, there is only one seat vacant and that is in First class. I talked to our Team and we took an extraordinary decision. To send a Traveler from Economy class to First class is happening for the first time in our Company’s history ……”.
The pretty Lady was becoming so ecstatic and even before uttering a word …. The air Hostess turned to the Person with no arms and said, “Sir, May you please move to the First class? We want to eliminate the tragedy of you traveling next to a manner less person”. Hearing this every one clapped immensely and welcomed the decision. The pretty Lady was tremendously ashamed.
Then the person stood up and said, “I am a Ex-serviceman and I lost my arms in a bomb blast in Kashmir border during an operation. At first, when I heard the lady complain, I thought; “did I put my life at risk for these kind of people”? But after looking at their actions and your response to her, I feel proud that I lost my arms for my Country” . And saying so, he walked into the First class.
The pretty Lady drowned into her seat so ashamed of herself.
Beauty is not in what is seen on the face and body of anyone, but rather beauty lies in your good character and great manners.
1. I command every spirit of pride and manner-less behavior in my life, what are you waiting for, disappear by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh Lord God, change my life and characters henceforth by fire to a godly one, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, help me to eat the fruits of my labor henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have A Lovely Saturday!
