What's Inside Comes Out

Post  Admin on Fri 05 May 2017, 10:05 pm

What's Inside Comes Out

A certain downtown businessman became fond of the
little boy who shined his shoes every day. He did such
a good job that one day the businessman asked him,
"Son, how come you are so conscientious about your

The boy felt complimented. He looked up to the man, and
said, "Mister, I'm a Christian and I try to shine every
pair of shoes as if Jesus Christ were wearing them."

The businessman saw something genuine in the shoeshine
boy. Soon after that he began reading his Bible. When
he decided to be a Christian himself, he credited his
decision to the little boy who shined every pair of
shoes "as if Jesus Christ were wearing them."

What's inside us comes out in our social and moral
behavior. Here is the other extreme:

Another boy was raised by a mother who showed him no
affection, no love, no discipline. He was a "loner" in
school. The girls teased him and the boys beat him up.
He joined the marines but only found abuse there and,
eventually, was dishonorably discharged. He married and
tried to have a family, but his wife hated him. He lost
all sense of self-worth. Maybe you've guessed his name.

One day--it was November 22, 1963--he went out into the
garage, took a rifle, drove into Dallas, and put two
holes in the head of our former President, John
Fitzgerald Kennedy. Yes, his name was Lee Harvey
Oswald. One who lacks self-esteem and has a poor
self-image is likely to be negative, anti-social and
often deplorably immoral.
