  1. Wow, I read your analogies one by one and I’ve literally grasped ALL of them! Thanks Lindy for sharing these foods of thought and spiritual inspiration. I think I’ve heard the barber story from a Homily once in my local church. The first time I learned of it, it really struck my heart deep down. When you reminded me of the story through this article, I got struck again straight to the heart. You just helped me remember what I should be doing all along to help turn my unpleasant life around. This is such an inspiring post.

  2. Hello and thanks so much for sharing in a few words the power of analogies. It is good to use analogies which can strengthen a point and make it all clear. This is a great way to break something down so that those who are listening or reading can get a better understanding. Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. Great analogies that I had not read before.  I loved reading the garbage truck law.  So many people need this!  They just need to unload their garbage and then move on.  Let it be taken out with the trash and forget about it.  Life is too short to dwell on the past, the would of could of should of’s.  We have to live in the present.  To me it is like carrying a suitcase around with you everywhere you go.  

  4. I loved reading the various borrowed analogies! I think my favorite one was about the glow stick though. We often think we are so strong when we are unbending and straight, but when we are broken and begin to show the light of God, well, that is when the miracle happens. When we are broken, that is when God can shine through us! I love this analogy!
