The Hole

A man was asked to paint a boat. He brought with him paint and brushes and began to paint.

While painting, he realized there was hole in the ship and decided to repair it. When finished painting, he received his money and left.

The next day, the owner of the boat came to the painter and presented to him a nice cheque much higher than the payment of the painting.

The painter was surprised: You have already paid me for painting the boat! He said. But this is not for painting job, it’s for having repaired the hole in the boat. Ah! But it was such a small service….. Certainly it’s not worth paying me so such a high amount for something so insignificant.

My dear friend you do not understand. When I asked you to paint the boat, I forgot to mention about the hole. When the boat dried up my kids took the boat and went on a fishing trip. They did not know there was a hole in the boat and I was not at home at that time.

Imagine what went through my mind but when I saw them, I could not believe it. Then I found that the hole in the boat had been repaired by you. You saved the life of my children. God bless you.

–Repair the leak in someone’s life today, wipe away tears and help someone you find.
–Identify and appreciate those who repair the little holes in your life today, because those little holes could have led to something big and disastrous.

With many peaceful blessings

I am an author and broadcaster. In January 2013 I very nearly died but our Father God healed me and I am still alive to tell the tale! I have written/edited several books about the Bible, God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus. My future ministry is focused on outreach. I do not just want to preach to the converted but to many people 'out there' who do not know Jesus as their Saviour and who are in great need of His love and compassion. Praise be to the Lord our God, our Heavenly Father
