This is a story about five brothers who live in peace at one village.
They are orphans, they live by run rice field inheritance from their
parents. They rice field is far from home, so they have to go to field
And they agree to let the youngest brother at home to take care their
house. The youngest agree and very happy about the decision. So every
day when his brother go home they found that house is clean, knit and
comfortable. Foods and drinks have prepared on the table, their bed were
knitted and all dirty clothes have washed.
But one of his brother had jealous to the youngest, so he said to other
brother that the youngest is cheated, because he did not go to the field.
And the other agree to about his opinion so now they decide to go to the
field together including the youngest. But now when they go home they
found that their home is mess, not care well and table is empty. Now
they realize that their youngest brother had very important role , and
his brother have under estimated his role.
So what we got from this story ? Never under estimated people who work
behind the scene, whose work never can be seen. Look ! Who is in your
house look "useless" , may be that your old man, grandpa, grandma who
sitting everyday, the servant who seems lazy, cleaning service on your
church, prayer who never show up on the podium or whoever you always
underestimated. Learn to see the good side from their present, and
imagine how if they never stay at your house and church ? Unconsciously
we said arrogant to this people," Let them go, because they are useless !
Brother and sister if we do that ,one day we will found that we had lost
the best people in our home and church. Remember ! We have equipped with
different talents, so by that we can work together and help each other.
Even though some people have average talent, but we have to learn to
respect them and their ability.
Pray: Lord, I glad for people You had placed around me. Make me able to
respect them and never under estimated them even they do small things.
Teach me to work together with other people. In the name of our Lord
Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
