Parable of the Pencil

The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting it into the box.

“There are 5 things you need to know before I send uou out into the world,” he told the pencil.

“One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in Someone’s hand.”

“Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you’ll need it to become a better pencil.”

“Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.”

“Four: The most important part of you will always be what’s inside.”

“Five: On every surface uou are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write.”
