  2. 2. In the beginning, the Pencil Maker spoke to the pencil saying, "There are five things you need to know before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and you will become the best pencil you can be."
  3. 3. You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone's hand.
  4. 4. You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but this is required if you want to become a better pencil.
  5. 5. You have the ability to correct any mistakes you might make.
  6. 6.   The most important part of you will always be what's inside.
  7. 7. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write. You must always leave a clear, legible mark no matter how difficult the situation.
  8. 8. Replacing the pencil with yourself... • Always remember these rules and never forget them, in this way you will become the best person you want to be. Be the best person you want to be!!!
  9. 9. You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in God's hand, and allow other human beings to access you for the many gifts you possess.
  10. 10. You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, by going through various problems, but you'll need it to become a stronger person.
  11. 11. You will be able to correct mistakes you might make or grow  through them.

  14. 14. Reflection: We are like pencils... • Who is the pencil maker? • What does sharpening mean? • What is the most important part of the pencil? How about for people? Why? • Why are we like pencils? Explain your answer/s. • What did you learn from this story?
  15. 15. Leave a Mark: In dealing with others • Do not use words like weapons to hurt or get back at somebody. • Instead, use words to heal or express care and concern for others.
