Lesson of the Spider

We watched a spider patiently but frantically trying to get out. You see, he was trapped on the inside of the window screen between the glass. If only he knew how he got in then he  could find his way out. But now it is too late and he is trapped. Moral of the story: Don't try to be a part of the "In-crowd." Just be your sweet self, loving and humble, and people will want to be near you. Resist the pressure. Defy it. Instead love. Because if you love you will be patient, you will be kind, you will not seek your own way or be provoked because of your pride. (1 Corinthians 13)
"A heart that is full of love thinks not of itself, but of others. It prays for all living things and for the whole world." (Elder Thaddeus, Our Thoughts Determine Our Lives, 89)
