Two close boyhood friends grow up and go their separate ways.
One becomes a humble monk, the other a rich and powerful minister to the king.
Years later they meet up again.
As they catch up, the minister in his fine robes, takes pity on the thin, shabby monk.
Seeking to help, he says: “You know, if you could learn to cater to the king you wouldn’t have to live on rice and beans.”
To which the monk replies: “If you could learn to live on rice and beans you wouldn’t have to cater to the king!”
Be content with what you have and be grateful for this wonderful life.
And as someone said, “life is easy…let’s not make it hard.”
The goal is not having more but living life on your own terms.
This Sunday, Remember, there are 2 ways to get enough, one is to continue to accumulate more and more and the other is to desire less.
Stay blessed forever.
