Lição do Fogo

 

Um membro de um determinado grupo, ao qual prestava serviços regularmente, sem nenhum aviso deixou de participar de suas atividades.

Após algumas semanas, o líder daquele grupo decidiu visitá-lo. Era uma noite muito fria.

O líder encontrou o homem em casa sozinho, sentado diante da lareira, onde ardia um fogo brilhante e acolhedor.

Adivinhando a razão da visita, o homem deu as boas-vindas ao líder, conduziu-o a uma grande cadeira perto da lareira e ficou quieto, esperando.

O líder acomodou-se confortavelmente no local indicado, mas não disse nada.

No silêncio sério que se formara, apenas contemplava a dança das chamas em torno das achas de lenha, que ardiam. Ao cabo de alguns minutos, o líder examinou as brasas que se formaram. Cuidadosamente selecionou uma delas, a mais incandescente de todas, empurrando-a para o lado. Voltou então a sentar-se, permanecendo silencioso e imóvel. O anfitrião prestava atenção a tudo, fascinado e quieto. Aos poucos a chama da brasa solitária diminuía, até que houve um brilho momentâneo e seu fogo apagou-se de vez.

Em pouco tempo o que antes era uma festa de calor e luz, agora não passava de um negro, frio e morto pedaço de carvão recoberto de uma espessa camada de fuligem acinzentada.

Nenhuma palavra tinha sido dita desde o protocolar cumprimento inicial entre os dois amigos. O líder, antes de se preparar para sair, manipulou novamente o carvão frio e inútil, colocando-o de volta no meio do fogo.

Quase que imediatamente ele tornou a incandescer, alimentado pela luz e calor dos carvões ardentes em torno dele.

Quando o líder alcançou a porta para partir, seu anfitrião disse:

-Obrigado. Por sua visita e pelo belíssimo sermão. Estou voltando ao convívio do grupo. Deus te abençoe!

Reflexão:

Aos membros vale lembrar que eles fazem parte da chama e que longe do grupo eles perdem todo o brilho.
Aos lideres vale lembrar que eles são responsáveis por manter acesa a chama de cada um e por promover a união entre todos os membros, para que o fogo seja realmente forte, eficaz e duradouro.
