Don't Give Up

Once, there was a man who is desperate and wants to leave everything.
Leaving work, relationships, and stop living.
He then went to the woods to have one last talk with God the Creator.

"God," he said. "Does God could give me one good reason
for do not stop living and give up? "


God's answer is very surprising.

"Look around you. Did you see the fern and the bamboo?".

"Yes," replied the man.

"When planting the seed fern and the bamboo seeds, I treat them very well.
I gave them light. Provide water. Ferns grow fast in the earth.
Fresh green leaves that cover the surface of forest soil.
Meanwhile, the bamboo seed does not produce anything.
But I do not give up.

"In the second year, the fern grew more and more fertile,
but yet there is also emerging from the bamboo seed.
But I do not give up.

"In the third year, the bamboo seed has not led to anything.
But I do not give up.

In the 4th year, is still not nothing from the bamboo seed.
I do not give up, "He said.

"In its fifth year, appears a small bud.
Compared with the tree ferns, buds that seem small and insignificant.

But six months later the bamboo rose to 100 feet.
To grow the roots that take 5 years.
These roots make a strong bamboo and bamboo to give what it takes to survive.

I would not give the trial could not overcome my creation, "said God told him.

"You know, in the face of all this hardship and struggle,
you actually grow roots? "

"I did not leave the bamboo. I will never forsake you."

"Do not compare yourself with others," says the Lord.
"Bamboo has a different purpose with ferns. But both make the forest beautiful."

"Your day will come. You're going uphill and high-rise."

"I will rise as high as what?" he asked.

"As high as what could be towering bamboo trees?" asked God

"As high as he can go," replied the man.

"Yes, right! Supreme and glorify my name by being the best,
achieved the highest appropriate ability,
"says the God.
