Collecting the Drops

I have no idea who the original author of the following article is… but I just read it on whatsapp and thought it too good to let it go without sharing with my readers…The reason why I liked it so much is that I think it is a solution to our problem… when we cannot make up our minds what to do and how to contribute in a positive way… we forget that all we need to do is to use the present moment and keep doing good… whatever good we can do… even if it is to share someone else’s article:)… so go ahead and enjoy… and think… and plan… and do…


Recently, when I was going to bed , I started hearing sound of drops of water from the bathroom, in slow successions, but since it was dropping into an empty bucket, I decided to let it be.

But, alas! When I woke up the next morning, around 5am, the bucket was almost full! I was surprised that just drops even in such slow successions could produce that much. I couldn’t help it, ‘Just drops?!’ I questioned rhetorically.

But the following night, I made sure that the tap in my bathroom was locked completely and I checked the bucket and saw that it was empty, though wet. Then I went to sleep.

I guess you already know what I saw the next morning. The bucket was not wet as I had left it, but it was now dry!

Then I realized the importance of a drop and how much difference it can make in all ramifications of one’s life compared to a dry tap.

Imagine letting the drops be for a year, I would be scooping with drums at the end of the year!

So, how about that drop of savings?

How about that drop of kindness and love everyday?

How about a drop of reading useful books today and every day?

How about that drop of a verse of the scripture today and every day?

How about that drop of prayer today and every day?

How about a drop of worship today and every day?

How about a drop of step towards your God-given dream today and every day?

How about a drop of giving into your heavenly account?

What virtue and discipline will you start today in little drops?

Never neglect the importance of a drop, for when the harvest time comes, you would have made a big difference.
