Put The Glass Down


Put The Glass Down

Subject: Put the glass down

A professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in
it. He held it up for all to see; asked the students,' How much do you
think this glass weighs?

'50gms!' .... '100gms!' ......'125gms' ......the students answered.

'I really don't know unless I weigh it,' said the professor, but, my
question is: What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?'

"Nothing" the students said.

'Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour? 'The
professor asked.

'Your arm would begin to ache' said one of the students.

'You're right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?'

'Your arm could go numb; you might have severe muscle stress; paralysis;
Have to go to hospital for sure! 'Ventured another student; all the
students laughed.

'Very good, But during all this, did the weight of the glass
change? 'asked the professor.

'No' the students said.

Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress?'

The students were puzzled.

'Put the glass down!' said one of the students.

'Exactly!' said the professor.' Life's problems are something like this.

Hold it for a few minutes in your head; they seem OK.

Think of them for a long time & they begin to ache.

Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able
to do anything.

It's important to think of the challenges (problems) in your life, but
EVEN MORE IMPORTANT to 'put them down' at the end of every day before
you go to sleep.

That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh & strong &
can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!'


Of course that is a good thought but more important for us is that we put the glass down and give it all to Jesus and take it all to Him in prayer. He knows it all and He is our STRONG TOWER that we can run into.:israel::israel::israel::israel::pray::pray::pray::pray::jesus-cross::jesus-sign::jesus-sign:
