Lessons from a Pencil Maker

A pencil maker told the pencil 5 important lessons just before putting it in the box:

1. Everything you do will always leave a mark.

2. You can always correct the mistakes you make.
3. What is important is what is inside of you.
4. In life, you will undergo painful sharpenings which will only make you better.
5. To be the best pencil, you must allow yourself to be held and guided by the hand that holds you.

These 5 lessons can be applied to our own lives. Everything we do has an effect. We can always correct our mistakes and ask for forgiveness. Never get caught up with material things because it's what it's in your heart that counts. We will all face trials and tribulations - they will make us stronger.

And finally, let the Hand that holds you guide you. That is our precious and loving God. =)
