Pencil Maker’s Five Important Lessons

A Pencil maker taught the pencils five important lessons:

  1. Everything you do will always leave a mark.
  2. You can always correct the mistakes you make.
  3. What is important is what is inside you.
  4. In life you will undergo painful sharpenings which will make you a better pencil.
  5. To be the best pencil you can be, you must allow yourself to be held and guided by the Hand that holds you.

The pencil is you and the hand is that of your Lord.
