The Weakest Among Us Has a Gift

The story goes that two men were talking. One was a huge, strong fellow while the other was quite
small in stature. The small man was admiring the physical proportions of the other and said, “Boy, if I was as
big as you, I wouldn’t be afraid o’ nothing. Why, I’d go out in the woods and find me the biggest bear there
and I’d tear that big bear limb from limb.”
 
The big fellow smiled and said, “There’s a lot of little bears in the woods, too!”
 
It is not what we have that counts, but how we use that which God has given us.
 
The weakest among us has a gift, however seemingly trivial, which is peculiar to him, and which,
worthily used, will be a gift to his race forever. – John Ruskin
