–It takes a warm slice of bread to soak in the butter that is put on it. The butter will melt so beautifully. It does not matter how much butter we put, but if the bread is cold the butter will stay on the surface only. It will not melt even if you want to. Bite into it and you will see how different the two taste.
–It is the same bread and same butter but a world of a difference in the taste. The melted butter tasted just right but the cold butter had no taste at all. And so, it is dear friends with the Blessings in our life too. It does not matter how abundantly our Lord blesses us, showers us with His unconditional love but if we are not gracious in our acceptance of what he has to give us, how can those blessings ever make a change in our lives.
–Pretty much like the layer of butter on cold bread, blessings not graciously and wholeheartedly embraced continue to remain on the periphery and fail to make any positive change in our life. We have to root out selfishness from our very life and be selfless and humane in this World.
–We need to “Acknowledge our blessings”: accept them with gratitude and thankfulness. Always learn to “Keep your bread warm. Let the butter soak in, bathed in the richness of this butter, every bite, every morsel then is bound to taste yummy and divine”.
We are all Deeply Interconnected. Be Humble, for you are made of Earth, Be Noble, for you are Made of Stars.
