  • Simple life

    2. 2. The American businessman was fishing at a small Mexican coastal village when a small boat with a fisherman docked. In the boat were several large tuna. The American complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them.
    3. 3. The Mexican replied, “Only a little while.” The American then asked why he didn’t stay out longer and catch more fish.
    4. 4. The fisherman said he had enough to support his family’s immediate needs. The American then asked, “But what do you do with the rest of your time?”
    5. 5. The fisherman said, “I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, and take a siesta with my wife Maria. Then I stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos.” “I have a full and busy life, señor.”
    6. 6. “I am a Harvard MBA,” the American scoffed. “I could help you. You should spend more time fishing.” “With the proceeds you could buy a bigger boat.”
    7. 7. “With the proceeds from the bigger boat you could buy several boats.” “Eventually you would have a fleet of fishing boats!”
    8. 8. “Instead of selling your catch to a middleman you would sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your own cannery.” “You would control the product, processing, and distribution.”
    9. 9. “You would need to leave this small village and move to Mexico City then Los Angeles and eventually Where you would run your expanding enterprise.” New York City
    10. 10. The fisherman asked, “But señor, how long will this all take?” “Fifteen or twenty years.” “But what then, señor?”
    11. 11. The American laughed and said… …“That’s the best part. When the time is right you would sell your company stock to the public and become very rich.” “You would make millions!”
    12. 12. “Millions, señor? Then what?” The American said, “Then you would retire and move to a small coastal village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your grandchildren, take siestas with your wife Maria, and stroll to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos.”
    13. 13. “A man’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses” (Luke 12:15) Nothing truly valuable arises from ambition or from a mere sense of duty; it stems rather from love and devotion towards men. -- ALBERT EINSTEIN Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. --NORMAN MACEWAN Measure wealth not by the things you have, but by the things you have that you wouldn’t sell for money.
    14. 14. Living the real thing, doesn’t consist of things at all, because things cannot truly satisfy. Only through God can we find real joy, true happiness, and the eternal fulfillment that only He can give. Ask Jesus into your heart by saying this simple prayer: “Dear Jesus, I need Your love to cleanse me from my mistakes and wrongdoings. I need your light to drive away all darkness. I need your peace to fill and satisfy my heart. I now open the door of my heart and ask You to please come into my life and give me your gift of eternal life. Amen” PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO OTHERS!
