The result of memorizing and understanding
There once was a wise man, who would always say to those who would come to listen to his teachings, “watch out for the trap. Don’t sit on the trap.” As time passed by, a parrot in his house learned those words. Whenever the wise man said the words, the parrot shouted out even louder than him, saying “watch out for the trap. Don’t sit on the trap!”
One day, the birdcage opened and the parrot flew away. Worried about the parrot, the wise man and his disciples went into a forest to look for it. In the deep area of the forest, hearing the parrot’s cries, they quickly went to where it was. Pitifully, it was caught in a trap. Nevertheless, it kept saying the words, “watch out for the trap. Don’t sit on the trap!”
The above story is titled ‘The result of memorizing and understanding’. Thinking about the parrot, I examined myself to see if I just memorized the words of God with my lips and spoke the words. Recently, Heavenly Mother gave the teaching ‘be joyful always’. Although I repeatedly say it every day, I feel ashamed thinking how much I have put the teachings into practice. From now on, I am determined to be the God’s child who engraves each word of God deep in my heart and puts it into practice. I give sincere thanks and glory to Heavenly Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother who have let me live with the hope for heaven.
