There was a man who had 8 sons, 7 who were strong, handsome and successful and 1, the youngest, who was scrawny, and not very bright. The 7 went on to be great men, taking roles in society such as a leader in government, a banker, an industry leader, a doctor, a lawyer, a judge and a inventor. The man was proud of his 7 sons, which offset his disappointment in his youngest son.

The younger boy did not have any special gifts or abilities and really no ambition in life. The only thing that set him apart was that he loved God...deeply.

He included God in his every activity, talked with him about everything and always asked his mind on every decision.

One day, as God was preparing for the day of judgment, he required his friend, the young man that had always been faithful to speak on His behalf. And when the young man spoke, the Power of God moved through him and everyone listened and many gave their lives to God before that great and faithful day, when He judged the world for their sins.

When asked why He chose such a little abled young man to be His spokesman for such an important moment in history, God replied...he was faithful, he was available and he loved me! That's all I have ever asked!

Moral: A man's greatness is measured by the company he keeps.
