In the beginning, the Pencil Maker spoke to the pencil saying, “There are five things you need to know before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and you will become the best pencil you can be.”
“First, you will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone’s hand.”
“Second, you will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but this is required if you want to become a better pencil.”
“Third, you have the ability to correct any mistakes you want.”
“Fourth, the most important part of you will always be what’s inside.”
“Fifth, no matter what the condition, you must continue to write. You must always leave a clear, legible mark no matter how difficult the situation.”
The pencil understood, promising to remember and went into the box fully understanding it’s Maker’s purpose.
Everyone is like a pencil…
created by our Maker for a unique & special purpose.
Note: You can replace the pencil with yourself ; always remember these rules. In this way, you will become the person you want to be.
