Today is the start of Holy Week. Instead of blogging about random subject matters, I opted to share some inspiring anecdotes I have read through the net. They could be a source of reflection for some or heartwarming thoughts for the rest. This is also to stay true to the solemnity of the days leading to the commemoration of Jesus Christ’s death on the cross.
Holy Monday inspiring anecdote:
The following is a very meaningful story which is called “Let Go”, and written by Dr. Billy Graham.
A little child was playing one day with a very valuable vase. He put his hand into it and could not withdraw it. His father too, tried his best, but all in vain. They were thinking of breaking the vase when the father said, “Now, my son, make one more try. Open your hand and hold your fingers out straight as you see me doing, and then pull.”
To their astonishment the little fellow said, “O no, father. I couldn’t put my fingers out like that, because if I did I would drop my penny.”
Smile, if you will–but thousands of us are like that little boy, so busy holding on to the world’s worthless penny that we cannot accept liberation. I beg you to drop the trifle in your heart. Surrender! Let go, and let God have His way in your life.
