48.Barefoot!


David’s family was very poor but very godly. David’s parents lived happily in their small income, always praising God. This irritated David because he had to walk to school barefoot when all his friends had footwear. Whenever he asked papa he would say, “I’ll try, my son.” Sometimes he complained to his father and at other times murmured to his mother. He went to school with a long face because he was ashamed to face his friends. He was angry with God and whenever he prayed he charged God that He was not fair.

One day while walking back from school he saw two little boys walking slowly on the road. There was something strange in the way they walked. When David went closer he could see clearly. One boy was walking with crutches. One of his legs was missing below the knee. Oblivious to David’s presence he was joking and laughing merrily as he limped along. The other boy had his hand on the lame boy’s shoulder.

David was stunned. This boy with one leg is enjoying the goodness of life but he with two good legs was always complaining and angry. How foolish he had been! He forgot all about shoes. He looked at his feet and thanked God for his feet. A big smile spread across his face.

His parents were surprised that David made no more mention of shoes but in family prayer started thanking God for all that he had.

Don’t be sorry for what you don’t have. Be happy and praising for what you do have.
