5 rules of a pencil
Five Rules of Pencil
There once was a great maker of pencils. Unlike many who made pencils, he made his out of love, not a desire for money. When making the pencils, he would pass them the "5 rules of a pencil" to ensure that they fully lived out their purpose. These are those rules.
One: You can do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone's hand."
"Two: You will experience a painful sharpening occasionally, but you'll need it to become a better pencil."
"Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make."
"Four: The most important part of you will always be what's inside."
"Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write."
The pencil understood, promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose.
Now, put yourself in the place of the pencil. Always remember these 5 rules and never forget... No doubt, they will help you become the best person you can
One: You can do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in God's hand and allow God to hold our hearts and mold us by giving us gifts to share.
Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time by going through various problems in life. Similar to Iron sharpening Iron, so do we have experiences that shape us in different fashions, pointing us to God's vision.
Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make. Mistakes happen, yet we have the power of repentance and forgiveness to erase the marks of our sins and correct them.
Four: The most essential part of you will always be what's on the inside. No matter who you are or what you may look like, it is what is on the inside that matters. Our hearts determine the path that we follow.
Five: You must leave your mark on every surface you walk through. Always leave your mark, tell your story, and share it with others. We shall leave a legacy to those who may follow through our lives.
Finally - the best pencils are always Number 2
