How can you succumb to defeat when you’ve been made for more. . . You are more than your present situation and until you realize that you may never move on with life. . . Let’s go for a short ride with the story of the basket and drum. . .
There once lived a farmer who has in his possession a basket and a drum. It was during the raining period and it started raining on a bright beautiful day. Both basket and drum were there outside under the rain and it was only the drum that was getting filled with the water, every raindrop that fell into the basket flowed out of the holes in it. The drum started making jest of the basket that it is of no use and every raindrop in it are wasted. Eventually, the rain stopped and it was only the drum that had water in it.
The basket didn’t give up on himself just because of what the drum said to it rather he used that raindrops that fell on it to wash and clean itself in preparation for the future and it believes in itself that a day will still come when it will be of use too.
Gone is the rain period and day in day out the plants in the field starts to grow and its almost time for harvesting the field crops. The previous rainfall water in the drum has been used up. . . This is the dawn of another season.
The harvest period is near,the land is green filled with blooming plants anticipating to be plucked (harvested), the field is aspiring to be rid off of the ripe crops and prepare for another cultivation period. Now what’s next?!
The farmer is happy that finally he’ll reap the fruits of his labour and looks forward to leaving his farm a prospective rich man with bountiful harvest. Now the question is what will he pack the harvest with?!. . . lo and behold there sits the washed and cleaned basket in the store awaiting when it will be of use to its owner.
The farmer walked confidently into his farm with his clean basket in hand and his face beaming with smile with profound joy of knowing the basket will help him with the carrying the bounty from the farm. Finally, the basket is here saving the day and the future. The basket is finally of use and this time around it is of a great impact in the farmer’s life. . .
Who says you can’t be a blessing to your generation?! Who says you’re of NO use?! Who says you ain’t important?! Who says you’re a liability?!
Who says. . .?!
Who says. . .?!
Just look into their eyes and tell them you’re saving yourself for the best purpose. . . because you ain’t just for the present you’re for the future. . . You’re part of what beautify theĀ FUTURE
