Enjoying Life!!

Share with your friends on Facebook

There was a rich Silicon Valley billionaire who was disturbed one day to see a fisherman sitting lazily beside his small boat near the shore. 

“Why aren’t you out there fishing?” he asked. 

“Because I’ve caught enough fish for today,” said the fisherman.

“Why don’t you catch more fish than you need?” the rich man asked. 

“What would I do with them?” 

“You could earn more money,” came the impatient reply, “and buy a better boat so you could go deeper and catch more fish. You could purchase nylon nets, catch even more fish, and make more money. Soon you’d have a fleet of boats and be rich like me.” 

The fisherman asked, “Then what would I do?”

“You could sit down and enjoy life,” said the billionaire.

“What do you think I’m doing now?” the fisherman replied.

Are YOUR goals for later in YOUR life all dependent on how much money YOU have? 
Is there a lesson in this story for YOU?

WHEN GOD GUIDES YOU, GOD PROVIDES FOR YOU!!
