THE BROKEN PAINTING

Once upon a time, a well known painter was finishing his painting.
It's an incredibly beautiful painting to be shown during Princess Diana's
marriage.

The painter was consumed by and excited with his own painting that he
unconsciously took a few step backward while admiring the 2 x 8 m
painting. He didn't look back when he walked backward. He kept on
walking backward until it was a step away from the edge of the tall
building. Just one more step backward and he could get himself
killed.

A man saw what the painter was doing and was about to shout at him to
warn him when he realized that his shout might have surprised the
painter and thus made him incidentally took one step backward and fell
down. The man then took a brush and paint and began to paint on the
beautiful painting until it was completely damaged.

Upon realizing what's happened to his painting the painter got very
angry and moved forward to hit the man. However, some other people
who were also present at the vicinity held him and showed him his last
position which almost made him fall.

Sometimes we have painted our future with such beauty and dreamed of
beautiful days we will spend with our loved one. But then God seemed
to destroy our beautiful painting when He sees what danger lies ahead of
us.

Sometimes we are angry and annoyed by what God has done to us, or we
get angry to our superior in our workplace. But one thing we have to keep
in our mind: God provides only the best for us, His children.

LUKISAN YANG RUSAK

Suatu hari ada seorang pelukis terkenal sedang menyelesaikan lukisannya.
Lukisan ini adalah lukisan yang sangat bagus dan akan diperlihatkan
pada saat pernikahan Putri Diana.

Sang pelukis sangat senang ketika menyelesaikan lukisannya dan memandangi
lukisannya yang berukuran 2x8m dan sambil memandanginya pelukis
tersebut tanpa disadari telah berjalan mundur.

Dan ketika berjalan mundur pelukis tersebut tidak melihat ke belakang. Dia
terus berjalan mundur hingga di belakangnya adalah ujung dari gedung
tersebut yang tinggi sekali dan tinggal satu langkah lagi dia akan
mengakhiri hidupnya.

Salah seorang melihat pelukis tersebut dan hendak berteriak untuk
memperingatkan pelukis tersebut tapi tidak jadi karena dia berpikir
mungkin ketika mendengar teriakannya, pelukis itu akan kaget dan
malah jatuh ke belakang.

Kemudian orang tersebut mengambil kuas dan cat yang ada di depan lukisan
tersebut lalu mencoret-coret lukisan tersebut sampai rusak. Pelukis
tersebut sangatlah marah dan maju hendak memukul orang tersebut.
Tetapi beberapa orang yang ada di situ menghadang dan memperlihatkan posisi
pelukis tadi yang nyaris jatuh.

Kadang-kadang kita telah melukiskan masa depan kita dengan sangat bagus
dan memimpikan suatu hari yang indah bersama dengan pasangan yang
kita idamkan. Tetapi lukisan itu kelihatannya dirusak oleh Allah, karena
Allah melihat bahaya yang ada pada kita kalau kita melangkah.

Kadang-kadang kita marah dan jengkel terhadap Allah atau juga terhadap
pemimpin kita. Tapi perlu kita ketahui Allah selalu menyediakan yang
terbaik untuk kita, anak-anak-Nya.
