    What you do for others is more important...

    Please take time to read this.

    A voyaging ship was wrecked during a storm at sea and only two of the
    men on it were able to swim to a small, desert like island. The two
    survivors, not knowing what else to do, agree that they had no other
    recourse but to pray to God. However, to find out whose prayer was
    more powerful, they agreed to divide the territory between them and
    stay on opposite sides of the island.

    The first thing they prayed for was food. The next morning, the first man
    saw a fruit-bearing tree on his side of the land, and he was able to eat its
    fruit. The other man's parcel of land remained barren.

    After a week, the first man was lonely and he decided to pray for a wife.
    The next day, another ship was wrecked, and the only survivor was a
    woman who swam to his side of the land. On the other side of the island,
    there was nothing.

    Soon the first man prayed for a house, clothes, more food. The next day,
    like magic, all of these were given to him. However, the second man still
    had nothing.

    Finally, the first man prayed for a ship, so that he and his wife Could
    leave the island. In the morning, he found a ship docked at his side of the
    island.

    The first man boarded the ship with his wife and decided to leave the
    second man on the island. He considered the other man unworthy to
    receive God's blessings, since none of his prayers had been answered.

    As the ship was about to leave, the first man heard a voice from heaven
    booming, "Why are you leaving your companion on the island?"

    "My blessings are mine alone, since I was the one who prayed for them,"
    the first man answered. "His prayers were all unanswered and so he does
    not deserve anything."

    "You are mistaken!" the voice rebuked him! "He had only one prayer,
    which I answered. If not for that, you would not have received any of my
    blessings."


     


    "Tell me," the first man asked the voice, "what did he pray for that I
    should owe him anything?"

    "He prayed that all your prayers be answered."

    For all we know, our blessings are not the fruits of our prayers alone, but
    those of another praying for us.

    With obedience come blessings. My prayer for you today is that all your
    prayers are answered. Be blessed.

    What you do for others is more important than what you do for yourself.
