  1. 1. Lessons In Life http://www.slideshare.net/firelight1
  2. 2. There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly.
  3. 3. So he sent the sons each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a “ PEAR TREE ” that was a great distance away
  4. 4. The first son went in the winter The second son in the spring The third son in summer The youngest son in the fall
  5. 5. When all four sons had gone and come back, he called them together and asked each one to describe what they had seen
  6. 6. The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted. Winter Season
  7. 7. The second son said no the tree was covered with green buds and full of promise. Spring Season
  8. 8. The third son disagreed; he said the tree was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen. Summer Season
  9. 9. The youngest son disagreed with all of them; he said the tree was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment. Fall Season
  10. 10. The Father then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but only one season in the peach tree’s life
  11. 11. He told his sons that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season, and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up
