After enlisting in the 82nd Airborne Division, I eagerly asked my Recruiter what I could expect from jump school.
“Well,” he said, “its three weeks long.”
“What else,” I asked.
“The first week they separate the men from the boys,” he said.
“The second week, they separate the men from the fools.”
“And the third week?” I asked.
“The third week, the fools jump.”
I am the youngest of three. Both my parents are older.
Thought for the day
“A wise man is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool is arrogant and careless” (Proverbs 14:16 NASB).
It’s common sense that if you don’t want to get stung, stay away from the bees! If you don’t want to get burned, don’t get close to the fire! If you don’t want to fall off the cliff, don’t hang off the ledge!
The goal is not to see how close you can get to temptation but rather how far away from it you can stay.
