Words of Wisdom

Rivers don't drink the water they carry;
Trees don't eat the fruit they bear;
Clouds don't bathe in the rain they produce.

 We are by nature meant to GIVE even if we get nothing from it.
 Measuring life by what others do may disappoint us, but measuring life by what we do will make life meaningful!

 THANK GOD ALMIGHTY for the joy and success we enjoy regardless of its pains and disappointments.

The Wolf Story

Something that I read recently on how the Eskimos kill wolves.Up in the arctic circle there is tribe of Eskimo's who have learned to set very simple yet effective trap for wolves.

First he sharpen the blade of his knife razor sharp.Then the Eskimo coats the blade of his knife with animal blood and freeze it. Repeat this process until the blade is completely covered with frozen blood. Next, he plants his knife in the snow, the blade facing up and goes about his business.

When a wolf finds his way to the luring aroma of fresh blood, he starts licking.... Then more ...and more vigorously, lapping it until the sharp blade of the knife is exposed. However, by this point, so intense is his craving for the scrumptious blood, that the wolf does not notice the sharp sting of the blade on his own tongue, nor does he even realize that his ravenous craving is now being satisfied by his very own blood!

Soon the wolf notices something is wrong, he is getting weaker not stronger. Since he knows blood as food he increases his efforts to feed on the ever increasing flow of blood. His last thoughts are of how good the now warm blood tastes. His carnivorous appetite just craves more--until the dawn finds him dead in the snow!" By light of dawn, the Eskimo will find the wolf laying dead in the snow.

A good illustration on how sin entices and seduces us - leading mankind into the temptations and addictions of this world. He yields to them and starts experiencing pleasure beyond his imagination till the very temptations numbs his sensibilities and his abilities to comprehend right and wrong and ultimately gets destroyed by them. It is a fearful thing that people can be "consumed by their own lusts." May God's grace keeps us from the wolf's fate.
