Once there was a small kid on earth. One fine day it came to know that God
is distributing apples to humans in His place at heaven. The kid was so
happy to receive that news and it went with lot of enjoyment to heaven to
get the apple from God. There was a big queue standing to get apple from God
and this kid also joined in that queue. While it was standing, it was fully
excited and thrilled for the fact that it is going to receive in person from
God’s hands. It’s turn too came and the kid showed its both the hands to
receive apple. God gave the apple but unfortunately the tiny hands couldn’t
hold that big apple. Apple fell down and got wasted in mud. The kid got so
disappointed. The ministers near the God informed that if the kid likes to
have an apple from God again then it has to again follow the queue. Having
waited for so long the kid didn’t want to return back to earth with empty
hands so it decided to wait again in the queue.
This time the queue has become even more longer than the previous one. While
waiting in queue, the kid could see lot of people who returns back with
apple in hands and utmost satisfaction on their faces. The kid was so much
disappointed and thought why me alone didn’t get the apple in hand when all
others were easily able to get it. What is the sin I did that I alone should
suffer like this. Now the kid was so scared that it should not miss the
apple again. Again its turn came and God gave the apple to the kid’s hands
and after giving the apple God spoke to the kid.
“My dear child, last time after giving you the apple only I noticed the
apple I gave to you was a rotten apple and that’s why I made that to fell
down from your hands. Having given you a rotten apple, I felt bad for you
and I wanted to give you the best apple in the farm and that time the best
apple in the farm was growing and that’s why I made you to wait such a long
time in the queue. Here it is. Now the apple that you have in hand is ‘The
Best’ apple in the farm till to date. ”
Moral of the story and its practical application in our life
So, friends, sometimes it happens as even after we put our 100% dedication
and commitment things may get delayed or things may go wrong. Believe that
God has something great for us and that’s why this has happened.
Principles to learn and apply in our own life :
1) We must have rock-like faith in God and His divine plan for us.
2) God loves us unconditionally and infinitely.
3) He wants to give us the best that He has for us.
4) We should be ever grateful to Him for His gifts to us.
5) Whatever God does, He does it for our own good.
6) Whether we know His plans or not, we need to put implicit faith in Him
and His loving plans for us. Then and then alone we will be eternally
blissful in life.
Believe this and see the world….. Your world will also look happy……
