MY HANDS, MY HEALTH, MY GOD

 

Thus, without relying on anyone else and having immense self-confidence, one who girds his loins, he alone will attain spirituality.” – Shri Sai Samartha Satcharita, Ch. 45, Ovi 35.

 

A poor woman was abandoned by her husband and left with no visible means of support. When the case came up in court, the judge asked the wife:

“Madam, have you any means of support whatever?”

“Well, your honour,” she answered, “I have three, to tell the truth.”

“Three!”

“Yes, Sir.”

“What are they?” asked the astonished judge.

“My hands, my good health and my God, Your Honour,” came back the reply.

The resourcefulness of this woman, her self-reliance, and her dependence upon God, can be a lesson to all of us. The old saying, “God helps those who help themselves,” is still valid. The strength we derive from our faith in God gives us the courage to have confidence in ourselves.
