Resolution 2016: "He Shared his Best"


There was a farmer who grew excellent quality corn. 

Every year he won the award for the best grown corn. One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors. “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.

“Why sir,” said the farmer, “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”

              So is with our lives ... 

Those who want to live meaningfully and well must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all...

 -Call it power of collectivity...
 -Call it a principle of success...
 -Call it a law of life.

The bible teaches us in the book of Galatians that, "we will reap what we sow."  I've heard it said that life is like an echo, what you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get. What you see in others, exists in you. Remember, life is an echo. It always gets back to you. So give goodness ... 

It's the start of a new year, and everybody is out making resolutions, so what about posting this message in your workspace or at home by your nightstand? Thus reminding you to share your crops in the hope that everyone produces a great 2016.
