Adversity Is An Opportunity For Improvement

Frederick Brotherton Meyer, an English Baptist clergyman, once gave an illustration of the process that produced quality, as follows :

A bar of iron worth $2.50, when wrought into horseshoes is worth $5.

If made into needles it is worth $175.

If into penknife blades it is worth $1,625.

If made into springs for Rolex watches it is worth $125,000.


What a "trial by fire" that bar must undergo to be worth this ! But the more it is manipulated, and the more it is hammered and passed through the heat, beaten, pounded, and polished, the greater its value.

So do for human beings.

If you have a lot of forming, forging and exams due to the difficulties of life, the noble character in you will be more and more formed.

Remember that you do not have to live in a hurry way. Just enjoy the process and let the persistence bring out the great triumph.
