There was a man with four wives. He loved his fourth wife the most and took great care of her and gave her the best.

He also loved his third wife and always wanted to show her off to his friends. However, he always had a fear that she might runaway with some other man.



He loved his second wife too. Whenever he faced some problems, he always turned to his second wife and she would always help him out.

He did not love his first wife though she loved him deeply, was very loyal to him and took great care of him.

One day the man fell very ill and knew that he is going to die soon. He told himself, "I have four wives. I will take one of them along with me when I die to keep me company in my death.

Thus, he asked the fourth wife to die along with him and keep him company. "No way!" she replied and walked away without another word.
He asked his third wife. She said "Life is so good over here. I'm going to remarry when you die".
He then asked his second wife. She said "I'm Sorry. I can't help you this time around. At the most I can only accompany you till your grave.By now his heart sank and he turned cold.

Then a voice called out: "I'll go with you. I'll follow you no matter where you go."
 The man looked up and there was his first wife. She was so skinny, almost like she suffered from malnutrition.

Greatly grieved, the man said, "I should have taken much better care of you while I could have!"

Actually, we all have four wives in our lives.

  • The fourth wife is our body.
    No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it'll leave us when we die.

  • The third wife is our possession, status and wealth.
    When we die, they go to others.
  • The second wife is our family and friends.
    No matter how close they had been there for us when we're alive, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.
  • The first wife is our soul
    Neglected in our pursuit of material wealth and pleasure. It is actually the only thing that follows us wherever we go.

    One of the best messages I have received
Pass it on.....

Let people know that they have the grace now, tomorrow might be too late to accept Christ as their Savior.
Shalom

"Once upon a time in ancient China, the emperor told his ministers that he wished to visit a temple to offer prayers to the Buddha.

One of the ministers, who was particularly adept at flattery, said: “Your Majesty does not need to visit the temple.”
“Is that so?” The emperor was surprised at being contradicted. “Why not?” The minister bowed deeply: “The essence of the Buddha is the compassionate heart.

Your Majesty is constantly worried about the common people out of pure compassion. Therefore, Your Majesty is already a living Buddha and does not need to visit the temple.”

“Interesting,” said the emperor. “That reminds me of a story. Let me share it with you.

It goes like this: There was a devout Buddhist who had only one wish in life, and that was to see the Kuan Yin Bodhisattva. He traveled to many places and studied many sutras, looking for a way to find her. After years of effort, he finally succeeded. At a holy place far from home, the Bodhisattva appeared before him in a blaze of heavenly glory.
He fell to his knees in awe. Kuan Yin asked him: ‘Why have you come such a long way to look for me?’ The man said: ‘Merciful Kuan Yin, I only wish to ask you a question.’ ‘Very well,’ Kuan Yin said. ‘Go ahead and ask.’ ‘When I am in trouble, I pray to you and ask you for help.

Do you also pray when you feel troubled?’ ‘Yes,’ Kuan Yin replied. ‘To whom do you pray?’ ‘I pray to the Kuan Yin Bodhisattva.’ ‘But… you are the Kuan Yin Bodhisattva! Why do you pray to yourself?’
 ‘Because it is better to ask yourself for help than to ask someone else,’ said Kuan Yin with a smile.

Then, she disappeared in a blaze of heavenly glory.

“What I have learned from this story,”
said the emperor to his ministers,“ is that the Buddha lives in the heart.

When we visit the temple to pray, we are in fact praying to ourselves and asking ourselves for help. That is why I shall override your objection and proceed to the temple today.”

Welcome esteem readers.
In this article, I shall make mention of the following;
  • Reason For Call To Holiness

  • How We Can Be Holy

  • How To Observe Holiness

  • When to be Holly

but first, I recommend you to read my previous articles on The Signs and Examples of Consecrated Life before proceeding with this article.

Holy Holy Holy is the Lord, Holy Holy Holy song is being sung by the Angels, Twenty four elders in heaven are singing holy song. The cherubim, seraphim etc are singing holy song in heaven.

Our God is of white character, white eyes, white months, white nose, white hand white legs and so on and so forth.

Lord is not a sinner; HE did not put HIS hand or leg into sin. It has never happened.
God is not arrogant; He is pure, not polluted. The name of the lord is holy. We the creature of lord, our heart is full of evil, Human beings are chameleon.




May god help and empower us to live in holy life as we are going to be taught this lecture (amen)-Rev 15:4, 2 Peter 3:11, Psalm 111:9, Isaiah 6:3.

Reason For Call To Holiness

(1) To be acceptable before the God. - Rom 12:1
(2) Because the God that is called us is Holy. – Leviticus 11:44
(3) We are the chosen Generation. – 1 Peter 2:9
(4) To dwell in the Mountain of God. – Psalm 15:1-3
(5) We are of this word. – Leviticus 20:26

How We Can Be Holy

(1) Sanctification - Ephesians 5:26-27
(2) Consecration - Exodus 29:9c, 43:21
(3) Washing of the Blood of the Lamb – Rev 7:14
(4) By purification – 1 John 3:3

When to be Holy

(1) All the days of our life – Luke 1:74-75
(2) Every now and then – Rev 22:11
(3) In God’s presence – Psalm 19:13-14
(4) When there is much sin – Psalm 19:13-14
(5) During Tribulation – Rev 7:14

How To Observe Holiness

Brethren do not make straight your way to hell. The only certificate to enter the kingdom of God is HOLINESS.

I appeal to you that you end up the Christian race to heaven where there is full enjoyment, no sorrow, no problem in the kingdom of heaven.

Please walk upon the high way of holiness that has been prepared for you. - {Isaiah 35:8}

May God help you and I to inherit the kingdom of God.

"Once upon a time, there lived a big mango tree. A little boy loved to come and play around it everyday. He climbed to the tree top, ate the mangoes, took a nap under the shadow… He loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him.

Time went by, The little boy grew, and he no longer played around the tree.

One day, the boy came back to the tree with a sad look on his face. “Come and play with me,” the tree asked the boy. “I am no longer a kid, I don’t play around trees anymore.” The boy replied, “I want toys. I need money to buy them.” “Sorry, I don’t have money… but you can pick all my mangoes and sell them so you will have money.” The boy was so excited. He picked all the mangoes on the tree and left happily. The boy didn’t come back. The tree was sad.

One day, the boy grown into a man returned. The tree was so excited. “Come and play with me,” the tree said. “I don’t have time to play. I have to work for my family. We need a house for shelter. Can you help me?” “Sorry, I don’t have a house, but you can chop off my branches to build your house.” So the man cut all the branches off the tree and left happily. The tree was glad to see him happy but the boy didn’t come back afterward. The tree was again lonely and sad.
One hot summer day, the man returned and the tree was delighted. “Come and play with me!” The tree said. “I am sad and getting old. I want to go sailing to relax myself. Can you give me a boat?” “Use my trunk to build your boat. You can sail far away and be happy.” So the man cut the tree trunk to make a boat. He went sailing and didn’t come back for a long time.

Finally, the man returned after he had been gone for so many years. “Sorry, my boy, but I don’t have anything for you anymore. No more mangoes to give you.” The tree said. “I don’t have teeth to bite,” the man replied. “No more trunk for you to climb on.” “I am too old for that now,” the man said.

“I really can’t give you anything, the only thing left is my dying roots,” the tree said with sadness. “I don’t need much now, just a place to rest. I am tired after all these years,” the man replied. “Good! Old tree roots are the best place to lean on and rest. Come sit down with me and rest.” The boy sat down and the tree was glad and smiled.


Moral:
The tree in the story represents our parents. When we are young, we love to play with them. When we grow up, we leave them and only come back when we need help. Parents sacrifice their lives for us. Never Forget their sacrifices. Give them Love and Care before its too late."
