True Colors : Are you a Peacock or a Duck?

 

 

 

 

 

 

I just ran across this little inspiring story about the Peacock and the Duck. It really makes you think! Which one do you want to be like? Choose wisely! :)

“Spectators watched a peacock spread it’s tail and show it’s bright feathers in a park zoo. The bird thrilled them as it strutted about in it’s pen, showing off it’s beautiful tail.

Then, a duck waddled across park nearby. The peacock became angry and chased the duck into the pond.  In it’s rage, the peacock’s tail closed like a fan and it seemed ugly.

But the duck, swimming gracefully in the water, seemed attractive.  Those who had praised the peacock now delighted in the duck.

Sometime our true colors don’t show until we are put in a pressure situation.  When the heat comes your way, do you react like the peacock or the duck? ” (this story is from Seeds From the Sower)

 

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18

“When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” Proverbs 11:2

I hope you chose the duck! Have a blessed day!
