Nights in England are coal black, making parachute jumps difficult and dangerous. So we attach small lights called chemlites to our jumpsuits to make ourselves visible to the rest of our team. Late one night, lost after a practice jump, we knocked on the door of a small cottage. When a woman answered, the sight of five men festooned in glowing chemlites greeted her.
“Excuse me,” I said. “Can you tell me where we are?”
In a thick English accent, the woman replied, “Earth!”
“Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the drive before it has stopped snowing.”
Thought for the day
“Those hired at five o’clock came up and were each given a dollar. When those who were hired first saw that, they assumed they would get far more” (Matthew 20:9-10 The Message).
The key to overcoming envy is to stop comparing yourself to others.
