Recently, when I was going through a tough time on the personal front the first thot that came to my mind was “God, Why me??” However while surfing the net I came across this little story on Arthur Ashes which changed my whole perspectve.
Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player, was dying of AIDS he had gotton he received during a heart surgery in 1983. From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed:
“Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease?”
To this Arthur Ashe replied: The world over —
50,000,000 children start to play tennis,
5,000,000 learn to play tennis,
500,000 learn professional tennis,
50,000 come to the circuit,
5000 reach the grand slam,
50 reach Wimbledon,
4 to semi final,
2 to the finals.
When I was holding a cup, I never asked GOD “Why me?”
And today in pain I should not be asking GOD “Why me?”
So, the next time just before you start believing you have been victimised by God, yet again,…… just rethink!!
