THE WORLDS SMARTEST MAN

                           
A minister, a boy scout, and a computer executive were the only passengers on a plane.  The pilot came back and said that the plane was going down but there were only three parachutes and four people.

 
The pilot said, "I should have one because I have a wife and three small children" and he jumped.

 
The computer executive said, "I should have one of the parachutes because I am the smartest man in the world and they still need me."  He jumped.

 
The minister turned to the Boy Scout and said with a sad smile "You are young and I have lived a good life, so you take the parachute and I’ll go down with the plane."

 
The Boy Scout said, "Relax reverend, the smartest man in the world just picked up my knapsack and jumped out of the plane."

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

                           
A golfer is standing at a beautiful par five hole at the St. Simon Island Golf Club.  He hits a perfect approach shot.  As the golfer walks up over a knoll in front of the green, he can’t find the ball.  After further searching, he sees the ball has rolled into a paper bag on the side of the green.  So what does he do?

 
Take a stroke and remove the ball from the bag.

 
Give it a good, old-fashioned whack.

 
Wait and hope the wind blows the bag away from the ball.

 
None of the above!

 
Instead he takes out a match and burns the bag.

 
He’s an outside the box thinker.

SEA CAPTAIN

                           
A ship was headed to its destination and it saw a light in the distance. The Captain of the ship radioed ahead and said, "We are headed your way. Change your course 10 degrees south."
 The signal came back, "You change 10 degrees north." The captain signaled, "I am the captain, you change your course 10 degrees south." The signal came back, "I am a seaman first class. You change10 degrees north." The captain radios back, "I am the Captain of the mighty battleship, the U.S.S. Missouri; you change your course 10 degrees south." The signal came back, "I am in a lighthouse. You might want to change 10 degrees north."

 
Point: Everybody wants the
 other person to change.
 Sometimes we need to change
 ourselves. If we do, everything
 else might change with it.

 
Critical Points: A lot of times
 we want our boss to change,
 economy, recession, good or bad
 "we want the world to change."
 We need to become the captain of
 our own things, maybe change the
 way we do things, change our
 attitude, or the way we look at
 things.

ONE AT A TIME

A friend of ours was walking down a deserted Mexican beach at sunset.  As he walked along, he began to see another man in the distance.  As he grew nearer, he noticed that the local native kept leaning down, picking something up and throwing it out into the water.  Time and again he kept hurling things out into the ocean.

  As our friend approached even closer, he noticed that the man was picking up starfish that had been washed up on the beach and, one at a time, he was throwing them back into the water.

Our friend was puzzled.  He approached the man and said:  "Good evening, friend.   I was wondering what you are doing."

"I’m throwing these starfish back into the ocean.  You see its low tide right now and all of these starfish have been washed up onto the shore.  If I don’t throw them back into the sea, they’ll die up here from lack of oxygen."

  "I understand," my friend replied, "but there must be thousands of starfish on this beach.  You can’t possibly get to all of them.  There are simply too many.  And don’t you realize that this is probably happening on hundreds of beaches all up and down this coast?  Can’t you see that you can’t possibly make a difference?"

  The local native smiled, bent down and picked up yet another starfish, and as he threw it back into the sea, he replied:  "Made a difference to that one!"

  Point:  We can make a difference in the world by making a difference in the lives of others.
