The Grass is Greener

The Grass Is Greener…

A Japanese legend: One day, a man named Hasnu was cutting a stone and he became miserable and discontent. He despised his life as a stone-cutter.

As he complained, he saw a king ride by on his horse. “I want to be king,” said Hasnu. His wish was granted. Hasnu became king. But while king, Hasnu looked up in the sky and realized that the sun was stronger than any king.

So he wished to become the sun, and his wish was granted. But then a cloud came and blocked out the light of the sun. So Hasnu became the cloud.

Then the cloud burst on the land, flooding everything, moving everything in its path, except for a huge rock. The rock was stronger, so Hasnu became the rock.

Then a man with a hammer and chisel came to the rock and began cutting it. Only then, did he realize, that the stone-cutter was more powerful than all of them.

Remember this, no matter what your situation, your position, your station, or your circumstances in life, there is no one so blessed, so well-off, and so mighty on earth as the one who loves and follows the Lord.

For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? Psalm 18:31

Count your blessings today – how blessed you are because you’re a child of God, a servant of God, and one who knows the Lord.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
