Letter: Wisdom found in ancient stories

A week early, on the date Dec. 14, the world for a group of mothers, fathers, sisters or bothers and alike forever changed. In a huge way a part of their world ended — 12-14-12 not 12-21-12. Let’s investigate: Let us ponder the possibilities that the Mayans were not that far off the mark, it was only a week — the revelation of the Mayan prediction. What transpired in small-time America, Connecticut, to be exact, Friday morning, Dec. 14, 2012, was the end of their calendar at least here on Earth.

However, that being said, there is another ancient story that has been passed down through the ages: Pandora’s box. When she opened the box, great evils escaped, and mankind suffered greatly. The box unleashed wickedness upon the Earth. What was left in the box was hope. Hummmm, words of wisdom. I came across another piece of wisdom — “For by Grace are ye saved through faith.” Ephesians 2:8.

Works for me!
