The Story of a Painter....


A man was asked to paint a boat. He brought with him paint and brushes and began to paint.

While painting, he realized there was hole in the boat and decided to repair it. When he finished painting, he received his money and left.

The next day, the owner of the boat came to the painter's residence and presented to him a nice cheque much higher than the payment given for painting the boat.

The painter was surprised: You have already paid me for painting the boat! He said. But this is not for painting job, it's for having repaired the hole in the boat. Ah! But it was such a small service..... Certainly it's not worth paying me so such a high amount for something so insignificant.

My dear friend you do not understand. When I asked you to paint the boat, I forgot to mention about the hole. When the paint dried up on the boat my 3 children took it on a fishing trip. They did not know there was a hole in it and I was not at home at that time. Imagine what went through my mind but when I saw them, I could not believe it. Then I found out that the hole in the boat had been repaired by you. You saved my children. God bless you.



LESSON:

Repair the leak in someone's life today, wipe away tears and help someone you find.

Identify and appreciate those who repair the little holes in your life today, because those little holes could have led to something big and and disastrous. I appreciate all those that have been there for me, repairing the little holes in my life in one way or the other. God bless and uphold u all.
Please whenever we can, Let's keep on repairing leaks and putting smiles and hope to other peoples lives.
