How Many For You?

19 June 2004

Tough times test people. Someone once said that we are all…

  • ... 3 meals away from borrowing
  • ... 6 meals away from begging
  • ... 9 meals away from stealing
  • ... 12 meals away from murder
What do you know about yourself? What do you know and believe about being tested? What pushes your buttons? Is it a rude driver? Is it a coworker? Is it an indifferent clerk? Is it money? Is it something mundane?

For most people reading this, it isn’t missed meals. It’s some other routine or intrusion into our comfortable little lives. Think about what you value above all else. Most of us spend way too much time trying to be comfortable. It’s time for all of us to take a stand, value something above our stuff and the lengths we go to trying to protect it. Otherwise, our values will unravel.
