The Answer Is In Your Hands

According to legend, writes Zig Ziglar, a very wise
old man lived on a hilltop overlooking the beautiful
city of Venice in Italy. It was reputed that he could
answer any question anyone might ask him. Two local
boys figured they could trick him so caught a bird and
took it to the wise sage.

"Tell us," they asked, "is the bird in our hand dead
or alive?"

The wise man replied, "Son, if I say the bird is alive,
you will close your hands and crush it to death. Or, if
I say the bird is dead, you will open your hands and it
will fly away. The answer is in your hands."

And so it is with life. Whether we succeed or fail, live
a meaningful or empty life, lay up treasures in heaven
or go empty handed to meet our Lord and Savior, it's all
in our hands! For whatever we sow we reap. It's the law
of the harvest. - Galatians 6:7.
