FERNAND THE BAMBOO- byMike Litmanwww.totalcoach.com


A very depressed Man talking to GODThe story goes something like this:God, I said . Can you give me one good reason not to quit? His answer surprised me Look around, He said.Do you see the fern and the bamboo?

FERN AND THE BAMBOOYes, I replied.When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them.I gave them light .I gave them water.

FERN AND THE BAMBOOThe fern quickly grew from the earth.Its brilliant green leaves covered the ground; yet nothing came from the bamboo seed after a year. But I did not quit on the bamboo.In the second year, the fern grew more vibrant and plentiful.

FERN AND THE BAMBOOAnd again nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.In the year three was still nothing from the bamboo seed.But I would not quit. Then in the fifth year, a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.

FERN AND THE BAMBOOCompared to the fern, it was seemingly small and insignificant.But just six months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall. But just six months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.

FERN AND THE BAMBOO It had spent the five years growing roots.Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle.He said to me.

FERN AND THE BAMBOOThen I came to realize God was telling me the same thing as in the story.Do you know, my child that all this time you have been struggling the story goes on.You have actually been growing roots. I would not quit on the bamboo.

FERN AND THE BAMBOOI will never quit on you.Dont ever compare yourself with others he said.The bamboo had a different purpose from the fern.Yet both make the forest beautiful.

FERN AND THE BAMBOOYour time will come, God said to me.You will rise high.I asked, How high should I rise?He answered As high as it can.I replied Yes. He said, Give me glory by rising as high as you can.

Moral If you are a fern then you are already making the environment clean and green.

If you are taking time to grow then understand that your roots are growing deep so that you can rise high.
