I received an email a few days ago and I decided to share it to others who have the same
fate as mine...that is being an unemployed graduate.
Hard as it sounds but it's the truth for many of us (admit it!). I'm brave enough to
admit that I am a double degree holder yet I chose to be a SAHM and I needed to be one.
So here goes...
> An unemployed graduate woke up one morning and checked his
> pocket. All he had left was $10. He decided to use it to buy
> food and then wait for death as he was too proud to go
> begging. He was frustrated as he could find no job,
> nobody was ready to help him.
> He bought food and as he sat down to eat, an old man and
> two little children came along and asked him to help them
> with food as they had not eaten for almost a week. He looked
> at them. They were so lean that he could see their bones
> coming out. Their eyes had gone into the socket.
> With the last bit of compassion he had, he gave
> them the food. The old man and children prayed that God
> would bless and prosper him and then gave him a very old
> The young graduate said to them ‘you need the prayer

> With no money, no job, no food, the young graduate went

> it up, and suddenly he saw an advertisement for people with
coins to come to a certain address.
> He decided to go there with the old coin the old man gave

> By the time he got to where he left them eating, they had
> gone. He asked the owner of the canteen if he knew them. He
> said no but they left a note for you. He quickly opened the
> note thinking it would lead him to find them.
> This is what the note said: ‘You gave us your all and
> we have rewarded you back with the coin’ Signed God

> Have you given all to Jesus Christ? If you haven’t,
