A Melodious Music

There was a musician who was exceptionally talented and a gifted player of fiddle. He was once performing before a large audience, who were enjoying the heavenly melody with rapt attention and great appreciation. He was playing his own favourite fiddle which had four strings and a bow.

As the programme progressed, one of the strings broke. But he continued to perform without interruption. Then a second string also broke. Still he continued the music without break. After a while, the third string also broke. He continued his magic performance with a single string, with excellent expertise. His music was so melodious that no one could feel the great tragedy that occurred during the performance.

This incident teaches us that for a really talented and gifted musician, a single string is sufficient to create a miraculous melody.

Each person is precious to God. Everyone is gifted with unique capabilities. He knows and loves each one of us.

God has given every person a generous gift of special talents, which we often hide and refuse to use. We must serve God and our fellow men utilising fully, all the talents and gifts God has given to us.
