This is from my friend Becky at Winnthinking.
Lovely little story from Michael Neill, a highly respected coach who writes great books. A timely reminder that if we want to change things for the better, we have to be prepared to do most of the legwork ourselves!
A minister is driving through the country when he comes across a truly glorious farm being tended to by a lone farmer. Keen to remind the farmer of the source of his blessings, the minister pulls over to the side of the road and calls him over.
“The Lord has blessed you with a beautiful farm,” said the minister.
After a few moments’ reflection, the farmer nodded his assent.
“He certainly has, Reverend – but you should have seen it when he had it all to himself!”
