A Proud Turtle

A turtle once wanted to spend the winter in Florida, but he knew he could never walk that far. He convinced a couple of geese to help him, each taking one end of a piece of rope, while he clamped his vise-like jaws in the center.

The flight went fine until someone on the ground looked up in admiration and asked, “Who in the world thought of that?”

Unable to resist the chance to take credit, the turtle opened his mouth to shout, “I did.”

You will probably do more damage to your spiritual life than anyone else around you. Yet, in your pride you will try to blame someone else for your faults and take credit for the successes.
