Own Lunch

There was a story of 3 men who were tired of the having the same fare for lunch each and everyday. They all said that if they got the same meal for lunch the next day, they would jump off the building they were working on. The next day, one by one they opened their lunch and each of them found the same kind of meal from yesterday. Yes, they all jumped off the building and died. During their funeral, their wives conferred and 2 of them realized that if they only knew, if their husbands only told them that they wanted a different kind of meal, the wives would have cooked differently. However, the one other spouse sobbed more, cried more, so the other 2 asked why? She replied and said, that it was her husband who actually prepared his own lunch each and everyday!

In life, "all of us prepare our own lunch." If we don't like our jobs, if we don't like the state of our relationships, if we don't like what's happening to our spiritual lives - we have no one to blame but ourselves. Because God has given us free will. He has given us the power to prepare our own lunch. If you want to earn more and be free from debt, if you're sick and tired of your bad habits, if we want to put more joy in our marriages, if we want to grow in our relationship with God - then go back to your kitchen and prepare yourself another dish. Because, you design your own future. You create your own destiny. Ask yourself what kind of future you want to have? What kind of life? What kind of eternity? You decide. YES, we can decide. BUT IT's EASIER SAID THAN DONE. No further comments.
