A man was on a path to visit his friend and while he was on that path there was a massive tree in his way so he couldn't continue any further. He then saw next to the tree two axes one big and one small. So he chose to use the big axe and strike the tree. But unfortunately he needed more power to use the axe and he wasn't strong enough to use it and gave up very quickly. Sitting there deflated and feeling down he remembered his friend say to him that he should use the small axe but strike the tree five times each day. So he got up and began day by day he struck the tree with the axe and eventually the tree fell down. Every time he struck the tree he realised he would be getting closer to see his friend and it gave him the drive to keep on going. Eventually He was able to meet his friend and they had a wonderful time together because he remembered how hard it was to reach his friend.
Everyday let us take some time out to
1. Spend a little more time in prayer
2. Spend a little more time in bible study
3. Spend a little more time in worship
4. Spend a little more time in Christian Service
5. Spend a little more time with those who don't know Jesus
Jesus is our ultimate friend and he will do absolutely anything to get to us but as we journey to get to him lets work with God and be more obedient to His commandments that will make our journey to Jesus sweeter (James 1:2-3)
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
