Seldom…

Here’s a great quote from the book, The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho.  This spoke to me this morning as I reflected on recent learnings that have hit me like a brick to the head.

“When you possess great treasures within you, and try to tell others of them, seldom are you believed.”

Focus on the few, my friends. Do not worry about those turning away or against. Do not expect your treasures to be richly welcomed by those in search of silver and gold. Make your peace and remember this is the gig. Seldom will you be believed. Seldom.

Focus on the few…

    You shared this with me quite some time ago
    It allowed me to be at peace with that thought
    Look what Jesus went through
    He actually came to us
    Lived with us
    Gave us his life
    And still many turned away

  2. Happy to hear, Littlest Fricker. You rode like the wind this morning. Always good to be with you. You are one of the few for me, my friend. Enjoy the rest of your weekend…

    What a beautiful reminder. We’ve got to see and honor our treasures first and foremost.
