             Then Jesus said to his disciples,

"If anyone would come after me,  he must first deny himself and

take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life

will lose it, but whoever loses  his life for me will find it. 

           ( Matt. 16:24 )

To Save Just One



One beautiful and sunny day a man was taking

a stroll along the beach when he came across

a young girl who was frantically throwing

starfish into the ocean. The man asks the young

 girl, "Why are you throwing the starfish into the

 ocean?" The girl replied, "The starfish were

washed upon the shore last night in a storm,

and if I don't get them back into the ocean then

they will die."


The man looked around and to his
amazement there were hundreds of starfish

lying upon the sand. He looked at her and

cackled saying "Why are you wasting your time?

There is no possible way you can save all of

these creatures. By throwing back a few, how

 is it that you expect to make a difference?"


The young girl looked around sadly at the

starfish that surrounded them on the beach,
and then she looked back at the man and

replied "Even if I save the life of only one, then

 I have made a difference." And with that

she continued to save as many as she could.
