sure you take the time to fully read this! It's
something to think about.......
a time there was a rich King who had four wives.
loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich
robes and treated her to the finest of delicacies. He
gave her nothing but the best.
also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always
showing her off to neighboring kingdoms. However, he
feared that one day she would leave him for another.
also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confident and was
always kind, considerate and patient with him. Whenever
the King faced a problem, he could confide in her, and she
would help him get through the difficult times.
King's 1st wife was a very loyal partner and had made
great contributions in maintaining his wealth and
kingdom. However, he did not love the first wife. Although
she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her!
day, the King fell ill and he knew his time was short.
He thought of his luxurious life and wondered, "I now
have four wives with me, but when I die, I'll be all
he asked the 4th wife, "I have loved you the most,
endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great
care over you. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and
keep me company?"
way!", replied the 4th wife, and she walked away
without another word..
Her answer cut like a sharp
knife right into his heart.
sad King then asked the 3rd wife, "I have loved you all
my life. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and
keep me company?"
replied the 3rd wife. "Life is too good! When you
die, I'm going to remarry!" His heart sank and
then asked the 2nd wife, "I have always turned to you
for help and you've always been there for me. When I
die, will you follow me and keep me company?"
sorry, I can't help you out this time!", replied
the 2nd wife. "At the very most, I can only walk with
you to your grave." Her answer struck him like a
bolt of lightning, and the King was devastated.
a voice called out: "I'll go with you. I'll follow you
no matter where you go." The King looked up, and there
was his first wife. She was very skinny as she suffered from
malnutrition and neglect. Greatly grieved, the King
said, "I should have taken much better care of you when
I had the chance!"
truth, we all have the 4 wives in our lives:
4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we
lavish in making it look good, it will leave us when we
3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth.
we die, it will all go to others.
2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much
they have been there for us, the furthest they can stay by us
is up to the grave.
our 1st wife is our Soul Often neglected in pursuit of
wealth, power and pleasures of the world. However, our Soul
is the only thing that will follow us wherever we go.
strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part
of us that will follow us to the throne of God and
continue with us throughout Eternity.
for the day: Remember, when the world pushes you to
your knees, you're in the perfect position to pray.
