He who knows only his own side of the case knows little.
What great quote! I read this while studying for my English class. It seems like it could be the definition for ignorance. And let me tell you I have to recognize that I have been extremely ignorant and prideful. Yes! I am a very stubborn Mexican guy. Ouch!! This morning God spoke to my life through someone I have never thought I was going to be taught. Yes this is to be prideful!! when you say to yourself, “I don’t have nothing to learn from this or that person”.If I want to be willing to listen to the new generation, I need to be willing to listen even to the ones I don’t want to listen.
Today we had our ministers meeting and the person who gave the teaching talked about a taxi driver who decided not to complain anymore about his life and started to enjoy every day. He took care of his clients like no taxi driver has ever done it. He offered drinks and a variety of music to listen. His life was changed because he decided to be an eagle instead of a duck. Eagles will fly, ducks will cuack and complain.
You see, I have been complaining all these years about what I don’t have, on what I wish I could have, on what I would like to become. My Rabbi teaches that I need to humble myself every day……..oh my Lord! How far I am from that!! I need to ask you for forgiveness, because I have been thinking all about me, and that is why my heart is in starvation. Would you forgive me?
