"One a chief decided to give a feast for his people. He sent his men to every village. They told the people to come to the chief’s house and said, "The Chief asks each of the men to bring one bottle of palm wine and pour it into a pot at the door."


The day of the feast came. People put on their best clothes and walked to the chief’s house with their families. They stopped at the door of the chief’s house and poured their bottles into a very big pot at the door.


There was a man who wanted to go to the feast very much. But he had no palm wine at home. His wife said to him, "You must buy some palm wine."

But the man answered, "What? No. I don't want to buy wine for a feast that is free. No. No!"

He thought a little and then said, "Hundreds of people will bring their Wine and pour it into the pot. A bottle of water cannot be bad for so much wine."

And so he went to the feast with a bottle of water. He poured his bottle into the pot as other people did. Then he sat down at the table with all the other people and waited for the glass of palm wine which he liked so much.

The chief said, "Let's drink wine, dear guests!" All the guests took their glasses. But what they drank was not palm wine, but water!

So our man was not the only one who thought, "A bottle of water cannot be bad for so much wine.

"In a large house, lived a lazy Young Man. He woke up in the afternoon, ate his meals and then lay in bed again.
He had a parrot named Polly. She watched this lazy fellow and was puzzled by him.


  One day, Polly asked the Young Man, “Don’t you get tired of lying in bed all day and all night? The sun has been out hours ago, and people have finished half their day’s work.”


“Why are you so lazy?” she asked, as she ruffled her feathers. The Young Man yawned and answered, “Every morning, when I wake up, two friends whisper in my ears.

One friend is Hard Work and the other Laziness.”
“Hard Work says, Wake up! There is lots to do today. Time is passing by, don’t waste it by sleeping.’ But Laziness says, Why the hurry to wake up? Sleep some more.
Why should you work while there are others to work hard?”‘ The Young Man continued, “I listen patiently to both my friends. All my time goes by like that and so, I keep lying in bed for a long time.”

Moral:

Just talk does not help; we should get up and work.

"Once, a chief told one of his servants to bring him the best meat from the market. The servant brought him a tongue.

The next day the chief told the servant to bring him the worst meat from the market. The servant brought a tongue again. "What?" the chief said. "When I ask for the best meat, you bring a tongue and then you bring the same thing for the worst meat."

The servant said, "Sometimes a man is very unhappy because of his tongue and sometimes his tongue makes him very happy."
"You are right," the chief said. "Let us be masters of our tongue!"

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.
