A Little Story About Human Nature

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

I think this story just exemplifies human nature.

This man was shipwrecked on a small island in the South Pacific. The island was not close to the normal shipping lanes, so it was about 5 years before he was discovered by a Navy patrol plane. When his rescuers came to get him, they were shocked to see various buildings he had erected out of native trees while he was there. He was pointing them out- his house, barn and his church. He said that keeping busy with household chores and chores in the barn had helped him keep his sanity. He said that the church was important to keep his faith alive. There was another building up on a little rise, away from the other buildings. When asked what it was for, he replied that that was the church he used to belong to.

The point of the story is that some people even have trouble getting along with themselves. Hope you enjoyed it.
