I attended a birthday party with a gathering of about 30 people. I sat at the front seat. A lady started distributing food. She started from the back and unfortunately, it didn’t get to us sitting at the front. Another lady started sharing the drinks, she started from the front but unfortunately I had already moved to sit at the back. Again the drink didn’t get to me. I was so furious that I stood up to take my leave but then I saw three ladies each with a big bowl. This time, I tried to be wise by sitting at the middle. One of the ladies started the sharing from the front, the second lady started distributing from the back. The two ladies were sharing fried turkey. When they got to the middle where I was seated, it got finished again! Feeling so frustrated, I bent my head, putting my face in my hands… but then the third lady tapped me and stretched her bowl for me to pick. I stretched and put my hands inside the bowl… Guess what was in the bowl? Toothpicks.
Moral: Do not try to position yourself in life, allow God to put you in the right place otherwise you will wrongfully position yourself for toothpicks.
