What do we mean when we say :” WHEN WE REMOVE A NAIL FROM A WALL, WE WILL STILL LEAVE A HOLE BEHIND”?
Most of us have this experience, don’t we? When we remove any nail from a wall, we will still leave a hole behind if we don’t do anything about it! Using this literal meaning, we can apply it in many ways. I’m sure you will be able to think of different scenarios.
When there is a stain in our character, it is very difficult for us to remove that stain. Even when we are able to remove the stain, the scar still remains. We have to do something about it before the stain can be successfully completely removed.
This LIFE POINTER SERVES AS A REMINDER AND AN ADVICE TO ALL OF US!
We have to be careful in what we do. Once we have made a wrong move, it is difficult for us to turn back. Even when we are successful, there will still be a reminder.
Once, we have become a drug addict, the way back is very difficult. Once we have been in jail, it is also difficult for us to turn over a new leaf!
Hence, knowing the difficulty should not deter us from trying to mend our ways. How? The hole needs to be cemented though it will take time. It must not deter or discourage us to become good again!
Perhaps, some readers may have a better and clearer explanation than mine. Please contribute and share your experience so that our lives can be enriched!
