The Old Man and the Cup of Water

pouring _ water

An old man recently came to a pious man, and complained about a whole host of worldly problems.

The pious man said, "Dip a cup into an ocean, how much water can you hold in one cup? The water in that one cup is equivalent to ALL your worldly problems, the water left in the ocean is equivalent to the problems you will face in Hereafter. Now, tell me, which problem is greater?" The old man sat, stunned, unable to reply.

Prepare for the REAL problem of eternity; don’t waste your life fretting over PETTY things of this worldly life. Think about it.
