What Heaven and Hell are like?
An Angel was having a conversation with the Lord
One day and said, "Lord, I would like to know
The Lord sent the Angel to two doors. The Angel
opened one of the doors and looked in.
In the middle of the room was a large round table.
In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew
which smelled delicious and made the Angel's mouth water.
The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly.
They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons
with very long handles that were strapped to their arms
and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew
and take a spoonful, but because the handle was longer than
their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths.
The Angel shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering.
The Lord said, "You have seen Hell. Now go to the next door."
The Angel went to the next room and opened the door.
It was exactly the same as the first one. There was
the large round table with the large pot of stew which made
the Angel's mouth water. The people were equipped with
the same long handled spoons, but here the people were
well nourished and plump, laughing and talking.
The Angel said, "I don't understand.""It is simple" said the Lord,
"it requires but one skill. You see, they have learned to share
by feeding each other, while the greedy think only of themselves."
Moral of the story: Its people's attitude that makes our place of work,
a hell or heaven! 'Help and Seek Help' this makes all the difference
to each individual's life and makes our lives hell or heaven.
Success and happiness is all about effective team-work
make it a great place to work.
