At an old chapel all locals and remote people used to come up for Sunday services. One time it was freezing snow outside and no one came to chapel except one. Farmer came several miles to the chapel even after it was snowing and freezing cold outside.
Now there were only two people at chapel, one was clergyman and other was the farmer. Seeing that there is only one person in the audience.
Clergyman expecting a mutually helpful reacting from him said, “I am not sure if it’s worth proceeding with the services. Might we should better go to our warm houses and have hot drink?”
“Well, i am just a simple farmer.” said farmer.
Farmer continued, “But when i go to feed my herd and if there is only turns up for food, i sure don’t leave him hungry..”
Clergyman felt ashamed and started to deliver his services. Clergyman recited hymns and readings, last the services for couple of hours.
Finishing proudly clergyman felt very happy and thanked farmer for the lesson that – No matter how small the need is but our duty remains. We should complete out duties even if there is only small need. Before both take off for their homes.
Clergyman asked farmer, “Was that okay??”
Farmer replied, “Well i am just a simple farmer but when i go to feed my herd and if only one turns up for food that i sure don’t force to eat it what i have bought for the whole herd..!!”
We should Learn that our duty remains regardless of the Level of Need but we also need to Make sure that We adapt to change and deliver according to the requirement.
