John and Peter were once traveling together down a muddy road. A heavy rain was falling. As they came around a bend, they met a lovely girl in a silk dress, unable to cross at an intersection.
“Come on, girl,” said John at once. Lifting her in his arms, he carried her over the mud.
Peter did not speak until that night when they reached a lodging temple. The he could no longer restrain himself. “We monks don’t go near females,” he told John, “especially not young and lovely ones. It is dangerous. Why did you do that?”
“I left the girl there,” said John. “Are you still carrying her?”
Moral of the story:
Many times we grab hold of problems, issues, even picking up people and placing them in our lives. And however seemingly it seems that the problem is light, at the end, it did not end very well. Be wise and not impulsive and quick to jump into situations. Not all of life’s lessons need to be learned at the school of hard knocks.
Even in or work, we tend to take our work with us many times biting off more than we can chew- then sit back and let it dominate our thinking.
We tend to meditate on our problems and not the answer. We carry with us issues excusing them thinking somehow it will be good for us, yet only to be let down or worse. Judge wisely. There are right and wrongs in the world- are you still carrying one. Seek God’s wisdom in all things.
2 Cor 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Jas 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
