It’s All In Your Perspective (Author Unknown)
A little boy was overheard talking to himself as he strutted through the backyard, wearing his baseball cap and toting a ball and bat: “I’m the greatest hitter in the world,” he announced.
Then, he tossed the ball into the air, swung at it, and missed.
“Strike one!” he yelled. Undaunted, he picked up the ball and said again, “I’m the greatest hitter in the world!”
He tossed the ball into the air. When it came down he swung again and missed. “Strike two!” he cried.
The boy then paused a moment to examine his bat and ball carefully. He spit on his hands and rubbed them together. He straightened his cap and said once more, “I’m the greatest hitter in the world!”
Again he tossed the ball up in the air and swung at it. He missed. “Strike three!”
“Wow!” he exclaimed. “I’m the greatest pitcher in the world!”
The pessimist may be right in the long run, but the optimist has a better time during the trip.
Proverbs 15:2 (NLT) “The tongue of the wise makes knowledge appealing, but the mouth of a fool belches out foolishness”
In His Love,
