@ story from God @

I read this story from an E-mail, yes another story. I want to apologies if you are getting sick of my story. I am a person that likes to read stories because through those small stories I learnt a lot!
While I am in a depression stage, God showed me this story.

An aging master grew tired of his apprentice complaining and so, one morning, sent him for some salt. When the unhappy young man to put a handful of salt into a glass of water and then drink it.

“How does it taste?” the master asked.
“Horrible,” said the apprentice.

The master chuckled and then invited the young man to take same handful of salt and put it into a lake.

The two walked in silence to a nearby lake.
Once the apprentice had swirled his handful of salt in the water, the old man said, “Now drink from the lake.”

As the dripped down the young man’s chin, the master asked, “How does it taste?”

“Fresh,” remarks the apprentice.

“Do you taste the salt?” asked the master.

“No,” said the young man.

At this, the master sat besides the serious young man and explained:

“The obstacles in life are like pure salt; no more, mo less. The number of obstacles you face in life may be the same but the amount of bitterness you taste depends on the container you put the obstacles in life, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things. Stop being a glass. Become a lake instead.”

So, the moral of the story is??

You can't do this. Post a story and not tell us your point of view...

This place sucks..

*leaves, and slams door behind him.

*comes back...

eh... well... life is full of negativity lor... But God wants us to live life filled with the Spirit and filled with love.

The next time, before you complain about something, make sure you complain to a lake. e.g. Your cell group. Scoop 1 cell member out and the poor fella will taste salty.. (I think)

However, do bear in mind that nobody likes a sour plum. Some people only know how to complain, complain, and complain. These people have very few friends.
