A Wise Man
It has been said that in the last Centry an American
tourist, went to the City of Cairo in Egypt. It was with
the intetion of visiting a famous WISE Man.
The tourist hired a cab to take him to see this Wise Man.
Everyone knew about him. The turist was surprised when
the cab driver took him to a very poor side of town.
Again the tourist was surprised to see that the Wise man
lived in a very simple room. There was a lot of books and only
very few pieces of furniture. A bed, a table a couple of chairs.
Where is the furniture asked the tourist? The Wise Man asked
where is yours? The turist answerd - I am just passing through.
The Wise man answered - so am I. Life here on Earth is just
Temperary, but people live like they are going to live here
They forget to be happy.the value of things is not in how long
they last, but the intensity of how they happen. That is the
reason, why we have - unforgetable moments, unexplainable
things and incomperable people.
Remember this - God is not going to ask you - what kind of car
you owned? He is going to ask you - How many people did you
take in your car? God is not going to ask you - how many square
feet did your house have? He is going to ask you - how many
people did you recieve in your house? The tourist left. He didn't
need to know anymore...
