Ability to Change Myself
One day all friends decided to visit their one friend who decided not to follow simple life and just dedicate his life praying and helping others. When they reached, all gather around him and started to talk and ask him questions about his life.
One of them asked, would you teach us what you have learned over the years.
I am old, replied man.
Another friend said, Old and Wise. All these years we watched you praying. What do you talk to God about what we should be praying for?
Man smiled and replied, in beginning when I was young, I used to kneel before God and ask him to give me strength to change human kind. Gradually I realized that this was beyond me. Then I started to pray to God to give me strength to change world around me.
Well, your wish to help people around you was granted as we know that you have helped many, said one of his friends.
Man said, Well, I have helped many but I knew I still haven’t found perfect prayer. Only now at this age I realized what I should have been praying about from the start!
Friends questioned, What is that
To be given the ability to change myself, replied man with smile.
Whenever we feel troubled we think that We should try to change people and their attitude but What we need is to Understand that Sometimes Change need to Start with within ourselves.
