How to Put the World Together

Let me tell you a story.

There once was a father working in his home office while his three-year-old son played nearby.  The little fellow got bored and kept interrupting his father until his father came up with an idea.

He tore a picture of a map of the world out of a recent magazine and gave it to his son in pieces and said, “How about putting this puzzle of the world together for me? 
Here’s the tape.  Have fun.”

In no time at all the young lad came to his father with the picture all put together and proudly showed it to his dad. 

The dad remarked, “How did you put the world together so quickly?”

The son explained.  “Well Dad, there was a picture of a man on the back.  Once I got the man together, the world was together.”

THAT is a heavy thought. 

Just how do we put mankind together? 

To answer that one we need to read many books from around the world, but for now let’s consider this.

We start with a 1 cup of integrity, mixed well with a TSP of honesty, a dash of respect, a pinch of thoughtfulness, a full packet of understanding and tolerance, and then bake it in love at 98.6 degrees.

Truly.  Put man together and I believe the world will come together as well.

Think about it.
