Growing Good Corn

by - 5:06:00 pm

A farmer from Nebraska who grew award-winning corn, and yearly won a blue ribbon in the state fair once told a reporter at an interview that he shared his seed corn with his neighbours.

“How can you afford to do that when they are in competition with yours?” the reporter asked.

“Well” said the farmer, “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbours grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbours’ corn to improve.”

As, it is in other perspective. Those who choose to be at peace must help their neighbours to be at peace. Those who choose to live well must help others live likewise, for the value of life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others find happiness.

When we are fortunate to find happiness, we should radiate it around us. You may not have saved a lot of money in your life, but if you have saved a lot of heartaches for other folks, you are a pretty rich man.~Seth Parker.
