A Little Bit of Silver

I heard a fable today...

Once a wise man held up a pane of glass to the face of one of his disciples.  He asked the disciple, "What do you see?" The disciple answered, "I see cattle in the field, the gentle flowing stream and the majestic mountains." The wise man then held up a mirror in front of the disciple and asked him what he could see.  The disciple answered, "Master now all I can see is myself."  The wise man then said, "Isn't it amazing what a difference a little bit of silver makes?"

In bible school we learned that Judas betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver. Isn't it amazing what a difference a little bit of silver makes?  It is all a matter of our perspective. We may only look at ourselves, what we want, what we hope to gain.  If we are brave enough to remove the silver from our glass, what may we be able to see?  Never sell yourself for a little bit of silver.  Remove the silver and see how you can impact other's lives, see what they can gain through you.

Now due to the weather, I have not been able to get to those beautiful finds I showed you yesterday.  I did work on a project last night.  It is subway art for Valentine's Day.  Let me know what you think.  I did get the frame yesterday at Goodwill for $1.  So, I suppose it is in part of the redos! 

Have a blessed day!
