Once there was a mule that happened to fall into a well. Because the mule was old and not of much use any longer, his owner decided to bury him. As the owner and his friends piled dirt into the well, the mule kept shaking it off, looking up to the light and pawing his way to the top of the pile. Soon, the mule was up high enough to walk right out of the well. When you are in the middle of problems that seem to bury you alive, never give up, but look to the light of Jesus Christ and He will rescue you.

"Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say 'no' to oneself."
A Parable Once upon a time there was a great king who had ten sons. Before leaving for a long journey, he called his prime minister and his ten sons before him and said farewell. He charged the prime minister to take good care of his sons. -- As soon as he had gone, the prime minister called the ten sons together again, removed the fourth son who didn't seem to him regal enough, and replaced him with his own son that he judged to be a finer specimen of royalty.
-- By and by the king returned and called for his sons. he greeted them one by one until he came to the fourth son. "Who is this imposter? This is not my son. What happened to my son, Mr. Prime Minister?' The prime minister explained, 'Your fourth son did not look like a royal son to me, so I put my own son in his place.' --
As the story goes, the king banished the prime minister from the realm and restored his son. --
The king is God; the ten sons are the ten commandments. The prime minister is the church, but the church changed God's fourth commandment and put in a commandment of her own. The King is coming back one day and he will ask what has happened to His fourth commandment. www.sabbathtruth.com
