The Fisherman's Tale
Today, I was contemplating that often quoted saying, 'Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.' Teaching of the importance of education and empowerment, its wisdom applies just as much to us as it does to those people that we desire to help. So often, we place ourselves in a position of power over others in our own mind, and we forget that to best help them, we must cultivate something valuable within ourselves that is worthy of being received.
