Change the World...

This is a story I heard from a friend of mine today...I liked it and thought I would share it with the rest of you...

The Egg:
The Egg starts out with a hard shell and a soft inside BUT after putting it in boiling water, it changes and develops a harder inside.

The Carrot:
The Carrot starts out hard BUT after putting it in boiling water, it changes and becomes soft.

The Coffee:
The Coffee, goes into the boiling water and rather than changing the beans the water is changed.

So should we be...we shouldn't be changed by our world and our environment but we should strive to leave our own impressions on it, we should in essence go into the world and change it

The moral of the story...be like the coffee and forever leave your mark on this little place we call earth...

I really like this analogy. It makes me want to take the idea a little further and recognize that the coffee bean has to go through a process of being picked, roasted, shipped and ground up so that it can release it's full potential to change the water.

It makes me think especially of the life of the missionary who goes through much training and many trials and fully gives of his or her own self to make a lasting impact in a community.

Keep up the great work!
