Two buckets met at the well. One of them looked morose. “What’s the trouble?” asked the second bucket sympathetically.
“Oh!” replied the first, gloomy bucket. “I get so weary of being dragged to this well. No matter how full I am. I always come back here empty.”
The second bucket laughed. “How curious! Why. I always come here empty and go away full. I’m sure if you started to think that way, you would feel much more cheerful.
Living by Faith: We never become discouraged. Even though our physical being is gradually decaying, yet our spiritual being is renewed day after day. And this small and temporary trouble we suffer will bring us a tremendous and eternal glory, much greater than the trouble. For we fix our attention, not on things that are seen, but on things that are unseen. What can be seen lasts only for a time, but what cannot be seen lasts for ever. (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 4:16).
