How Are We Different? (A Parable)
There once was a poor man who sat by the roadside every day and begged for money. He had nothing. He had no way to help himself change his situation and no means of bettering his life. He was just trying to get by. Many good-hearted people saw his situation and gave him a quarter here, or a dollar there and he always scraped through with just enough to survive. Thanks to the good-hearted people, survival became his motive. Just survive. He was content because he knew nothing else.
One day everything changed! A man of means came by and sat beside him and asked him about his story. Once he heard the poor man’s story the man of means invited him to his house. He gave him clothes to wear, food to eat, a room of his own and sent him to school where he learned a viable trade. In time, the poor man became an electrician… quite a good one in fact, because he was able to concentrate on learning for the first time in his life. Now, he didn’t worry about food, shelter or any other basic necessity, and instead, could focus his attention on bettering himself. He was given OPPORTUNITY. He had not been in a bad situation by choice; he was there because he had no option. The man of means saw potential in him and gave him opportunity to get beyond surviving… to thriving.
