  • 37. A farmer who had a quarrelsome family called his sons and told them to lay a bunch of sticks before him. Then, after laying the sticks parallel to one another and binding them, he challenged his sons, one after one, to pick up the bundle and break it. They all tried, but in vain. Then, untying the bundle, he gave them the sticks to break one by one. This they did with the greatest ease. Then said the father, Thus, my sons, as long as you remain united, you are a match for anything, but differ and separate, and you are undone.
  • 38. F A M I L Y STORY
    I ran into a stranger as he passed by,
    "Oh excuse me please" was my reply.
    He said, "Please excuse me too;
    I wasn't watching for you."
  • 39. We were very polite, this stranger and I.
    We went on our way and we said goodbye.
    But at home a different story is told,
    How we treat our loved ones, young and old.
  • 40. Later that day, cooking the evening
    My son stood beside me very still.
    When I turned, I nearly knocked him
    "Move out of the way," I said with a frown.
  • 41. He walked away, his little heart broken.
    I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken.
    While I lay awake in bed,
    God's still small voice came to me and said,
  • 42. "While dealing with a stranger,
    common courtesy you use,
    but the family you love, you seem to
  • 43. Go and look on the kitchen floor,
    You'll find some flowers there by the door.
  • 44. Those are the flowers he brought for
    He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.
    He stood very quietly not to spoil the
    you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes."
  • 45. By this time, I felt very small,
    And now my tears began to fall.
    I quietly went and knelt by his bed;
    "Wake up, little one, wake up," I said
  • 46. "Are these the flowers you picked for
    He smiled, "I found 'em, out by the tree.
  • 47. I picked 'em because they're pretty like
    I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue."
    I said, "Son, I'm very sorry for the way I
    acted today;
    I shouldn't have yelled at you that way."
    He said, "Oh, Mom, that's okay.
    I love you anyway."
  • 48. I said, "Son, I love you too,
    and I do like the flowers, especially the blue."
    Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company
    that we are working for could easily replace us in
    a matter of days.
    But the family we left behind will feel the loss
    for the rest of their lives.
  • 49. And come to think of it, we pour
    ourselves more
    into work than into our own family,
    an unwise investment indeed,
    don't you think?
    So what is behind the story?
  • 50. Do you know what the word FAMILY
