SIX CARTONS OF MILK

A wife asks her husband, “Would you please go shopping for me? Buy one carton of milk, and if they have eggs, get six.”

A short time later the husband comes back with six cartons of milk.

The wife asks him, “Why on earth did you buy six cartons of milk?”

He replied, “They had eggs.”

PONDER AND CONSIDER

  • Good communication is not as easy as it sounds! Misunderstandings can happen so easily.
  • Are we really listening to what is actually being said?

I'm a Jesuit from Malta, an artist at heart and madly in love with all things beautiful and soulful: music, painting, sculpture, photography, film, theatre, poetry, good company, good food, good wine and more. I believe that beauty is a wonderful entry into the mystery of the God “whose centre is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.” God can be sensed in all things if and when we engage in a long, loving look at the real that surrounds us. I consider myself a seeker with bottomless curiosity, an eternal student of life, exploring fresh and creative ways to proclaim the Good News in the hope of helping fellow pilgrims and seekers to embrace real and radical changes that will lead to conversion and transformation.
