The Cock & the Jewel
A Cock was busily scratching and scraping about to find something to eat for himself and his family, when he happened to turn up a precious jewel that had been lost by its owner.
“Aha!” said the Cock. “No doubt you are very costly and he who lost you would give a great deal to find you. But as for me, I would choose a single grain of barleycorn before all the jewels in the world.”
Moral of the Story: Precious things are without value to those who cannot prize them.
To see what a person really values in his or her life you must look at the individual’s priorities. What are your priorities.
A wise man once told me that JOY is a blessed state. When asked how you achieve joy his reply was, “You must first set your priorities in life. If we are to achieve joy we must put Jesus first, Others second and Yourself last.”
