☔🌧IT WAS A RAINY DAY☔🌧

IT WAS RAINING HEAVILY ON A MONDAY MORNING WHEN I HEARD A KNOCK AT MY DOOR. I OPENED THE DOOR
A N D
STANDING BEFORE ME WAS A YOUNG MAN WITH BUSHY HAIR, DIRTY SHOES, WELL SOAKED BY THE RAIN, LOOKING TOO UNKEMPT FOR MY LIKING.

“GOOD MORNING, SIR!” HE GREETED WITH HUMILITY.

“HOW CAN I HELP YOU?” I REPLIED DISPLEASINGLY.

“PLEASE SIR, KINDLY HELP ME WITH YOUR UMBRELLA IF YOU HAVE ANY, MY JOURNEY IS STILL VERY FAR FROM HERE, I PROMISE TO RETURN IT TOMORROW MORNING.”

I LOOKED AT HIM FOR A WHILE, SUDDENLY SOME THOUGHTS CAME INTO MY MIND. WHY WOULD SOMEONE WHO IS ALREADY SOAKED BE ASKING FOR AN UMBRELLA, WHAT IF HE DOESN’T RETURN IT?
“I DON’T TRUST YOU, BUT I WILL GIVE YOU.” I SAID. “BUT MAKE SURE YOU BRING IT AS YOU HAVE PROMISED.”

I WENT IN THE HOUSE
A N D
GOT AN OLD DIRTY UMBRELLA THAT I STOPPED USING FOR MONTHS
A N D
GAVE HIM.

“THANK YOU VERY MUCH.” HE HAPPILY EXPRESSED
A N D
LEFT.

NEXT MORNING, THERE WAS A KNOCK AT MY DOOR, I CAME OUT
A N D
SAW TWO HANDSOME MEN DRESSED IN ROYAL APPAREL.

“GOOD MORNING SIRS!” I HUMBLY BOWED IN GREETINGS.

“GOOD MORNING.” THEY REPLIED. “HERE IS A PRESENT FOR YOU FROM OUR PRINCE, SON OF THE EMPEROR.”

“I DON’T KNOW ANY PRINCE.” I MUTTERED.

THEY BROUGHT OUT A WELL PACKAGED GOLDEN BOX ON TOP OF IT IT WAS WRITTEN, “THANKS FOR YESTERDAY”

I SAID TO THEM, ‘I CAN’T REMEMBER MEETING
O R
HELPING ANY PRINCE YESTERDAY.”

ONE OF THEM BROUGHT OUT ANOTHER PRESENT.

“HERE IS ALSO YOURS FROM THE PRINCE,” I EXCITEDLY UNWRAPPED THE GIFT IN THEIR PRESENCE, BEHOLD IT WAS MY OLD DIRTY UMBRELLA THAT I GAVE TO THE POOR YOUNG MAN YESTERDAY. I SCREAMED IN TEARS, I DIDN’T GIVE HIM MY BEST, I HAD THE BEST UMBRELLA,
B U T
I GAVE HIM THE WORST (I WEPT BITTERLY) THE VOICE ECHOED SO LOUD,

“IT IS TO LATE TO APOLOGIZE!”

WHEN I LIFTED UP MY FACE, BOTH MEN HAD DISAPPEARED..

I REMEMBERED THE SACRIFICE OF CAIN
A N D
ABEL IN GENESIS 4:3-6. CAIN HAD THE BEST
B U T
GAVE GOD THE WORST.

PLEASE HOW IS YOUR SERVICE TO GOD? ARE YOU GIVING HIM YOUR BEST?
O R
YOUR WORST?

LET THIS STORY BE YOUR MIRROR EVERY DAY, LOOK INTO YOUR LIFE AGAIN
A N D
AGAIN
A N D
ANSWER THE QUESTION.

HOW DO YOU RELATE WITH OTHERS IN LIFE, YOUR WORKMATES, FRIENDS, NEIGHBOURS, ETC?

REMEMBER YOU WON’T KNOW WHICH PERSON IS REPRESENTING GOD IN EACH DAY.

HEBREWS 13:1-2 STATES “LET BROTHERLY LOVE CONTINUE. BE NOT FORGETFUL TO ENTERTAIN STRANGERS: FOR THEREBY, SOME HAVE ENTERTAINED ANGELS UNAWARES.

😀🍅HAVE A BLESSED
NEW DAY😀🍅
