Do you like to put together jigsaw puzzles? Some families find a lot of pleasure putting together a big jigsaw puzzle on a cold autumn night, with cups of steaming hot cocoa and fresh cookies nearby. The most important thing about a jigsaw puzzle is that all of the puzzle pieces must be there. If even one small piece has been lost, then the whole puzzle is incomplete, and that takes away a lot of the fun of seeing the puzzle come together. The same thing is true for people. Each of us is a piece of the puzzle that makes up our family, our school, our community. We each have special abilities and skills that no one else has. When you put your abilities together with those of everyone else, it makes a beautiful picture of friendship and cooperation. But if even one of the pieces is missing, then the whole picture is incomplete. Use your abilities to help others; don’t let your piece be the one that makes the puzzle incomplete!
