A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.
The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter:
“Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.” The little girl said:
“No, Dad. You hold my hand.”
“What’s the difference?” Asked the puzzled father.
“There’s a big difference,” replied the little girl.
“If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.”
NOTE: Remember that “Security is man’s way of saying “I’m safe” or “Don’t be afraid” but real assurance comes when deep down, we know we are truly in safe hands that will never let us go, even when hopelessness cripples the heart and makes the strong faint hearted.”
