Thank God without Delay

an Article by Rev Taruna Wadhwa, Delhi


One day a construction supervisor from 6th floor of the building was calling a worker working on the ground floor. Because of noise, the worker did not hear the supervisor. Then, to draw the attention of the worker, the supervisor threw a Rs. 10 note which fell right in front of the worker. The worker picked up the note, put it into his pocket and continued to work. Again to draw the attention of the worker, the supervisor threw Rs.500 note and the worker did the same; he picked up the note, put it into his pocket and continued to do his job. Now to draw the attention of the worker, the supervisor picked up a small stone and threw downwards. The stone hit exactly the worker’s head. This time the worker looked up and the supervisor communicated with the worker.

This story is the same as of our life. God wants to communicate with us, but we are busy doing our worldly jobs. Then God gives us small gifts and we just keep it without looking from where we got it. Then God gives us some better gifts and we do the same. We just keep the gifts without seeing from where they have come and who is the benevolent so that we thank him. We just say we are lucky.

But when we are hit with a small stone, which we call problems, then we look up and we communicate with God. So every time we get gifts, we should thank God without delay, and not wait till we are hit by a small stone.
