Pencil Makers Lesson

                                       THE PENCIL MAKER'S LESSON

Just before putting the pencils in the box, the pencil maker gave them 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 only make you                better.
5.  To be the best pencil, you must allow yourself to be held and guided by the          hand that holds you.

We all need to be constantly sharpened.  This parable may encourage you to know that you are a special person, with unique God-given talents and abilities.

Only you can fulfill the purpose which you were born to accomplish.  Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that your life is insignificant and cannot be changed.  Always remember that the most important part of who you are is what is inside.

Just wanted to share this great little parable we had in family home evening last week.


  1. I am going to center our family home evening on that great little parable. Madi has been so worried about people making "mistakes" lately and what happens as a result of them....

    Thanks for sharing!
