OUR GOOD, SHORT BOOKS

THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “THE VISION:  Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place”

Eleanor Jones of Pasadena, California, says, “I recently had the opportunity to read this book and was VERY IMPRESSED!!!  The diversity and dynamics of the content alone are worth its weight in gold.  Not only is this book a GREAT educational tool in schools for our youth today, but it’s a book (and story) that can be shared in our church Sunday School classes and in our own homes.  It’s rich in history and offers encouragement for the present and the future.”

TODAY’S BLOG

Two Horses

~ Author unknown

There is a field, with two horses in it.

From a distance, each horse looks like any other horse.

But if you stop your car, or are walking by, you will notice something quite amazing. . .

Looking into the eyes of one horse will notice that he is blind.  His owner has chosen not to have him put down, and has made a good home for him.

This alone is amazing.  If you stand nearby and listen, you will hear the sound of a bell. Looking around for the source of the sound, you will see that it comes from the smaller horse in the field.

Attached to the horse’s halter is a small bell.  It lets the blind horse know where the other horse is, so he can follow.

As you stand and watch these two friends, you’ll see that the horse with the bell is always checking on the blind horse, and that the blind horse will listen for the bell and then slowly walk to where the other horse is, trusting that he will not be led astray.

When the horse with the bell returns to the shelter of the barn each evening, it stops occasionally and looks back, making sure that his blind friend isn’t too far behind to hear the bell.

Like the owner of these two horses, God does not throw us away just because we are not perfect or because we have problems or challenges.

He watches over us, and even brings others into our lives to help us when we are in need.

Sometimes we are the blind horse being guided by the little ringing bell of those who God places in our lives.  Other times we are the guide horse, helping others to find their way.

Good friends are like that.  You may not always see them, but you know they are always there.

Please listen for my bell and I’ll listen for yours, and remember. . .

Be kinder than necessary.
Everyone you meet is fighting
some kind of battle.

Live simply,
Love generously,
Care deeply,
Speak kindly.

And leave the rest to God!

For we walk by faith and not by sight.
