The Sun and the Wind

Thanks to Pastor Jim and the Net 153 Christian Magazine where the whole family can find health Christian resources.

The sun and the wind were arguing who's power was greatest the wind proposed this test "See the man walking on that road the one who can take his cloak shall be determined most powerful." Since the wind devised the test he chose to go first. He blew very hard but for all his bluster the man only clutched the cloak the tighter. The sun was now offered his chance. The sun smiled down on the man and soon he began to grow warm by and by the man removed his cloak and sat down on a log to enjoy the sun. When the man arose he forgot that he had left his cloak lying on the log and happily continued on his way.

Moral: Adversity makes one more determined to hold to what protection he has while prosperity can easily loosen his grip.
