Scripture Reading:- Matthew 25:14-30
Topic:- The Truth Of Life
Text:- Matthew 25:25
One night, just before the Shopkeeper closed for the day, a Dog came into the Shop, having a Bag in its mouth. The Bag had a list of items to be bought and money.
So the Shopkeeper took the money and kept the items in the Bag. Immediately, the Dog picked up the Bag of items and left.
The Shopkeeper was surprised and went behind the Dog to see who the Owner was.The Dog waited at the Bus Stop, After sometime, a Bus came and the Dog got into the Bus. As soon as the Conductor came, it moved forward to show its neck Belt which had money and the address as well. The Conductor took the money and put the Ticket in his neck Belt again.
When it reached the destination, the Dog went to the front and wagged his tail, indicating that he wanted to disembark. The moment the Bus stopped, it got down. The Shopkeeper was still following it. The Dog knocked on the door of a House with its legs. The Owner came from inside, and beat the Dog with a Stick.
The shocked Shopkeeper asked him, “Why are you beating the Dog?” To which the Owner replied, “The Dog disturbed my sleep. It could have taken the keys with it.”
THIS IS THE TRUTH OF LIFE. There is no end to the expectations people have from you. The moment you go wrong, they start pointing at your mistakes. All the good done in the past are quickly forgotten. Any small mistake committed gets magnified.
You can do a 100 things for people but once you commit a little mistake, they forget all that you had done for them. They capitalize on that your little mistake to hold it against you, whereas they themselves ain’t perfect.
The Owner of the Dog had no idea of what his Dog had gone through to get those stuffs, yet instead of appreciation it, got beaten. He had forgotten, it was his own mistake in the first place for not given the Dog the keys earlier.
Don’t stop doing good no matter what.
1. Oh Lord God, help me not to stop doing good no matter what, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh Lord God, bless all my work and the doings I have done for You and people in general, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, help me in this world and heaven to come that I may receive the recommendation, welcome you my faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Father, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Happy Lord’s Day!
