someone recently was telling me they'd like to go back to school and get a 4th degree
i was like why?
they said "because i'd like to be able to know i am perfectly equipped, i want to know i have reached the highest height and i have every tool and i'm prepared for anything"
i said "oh like goliath?"
lol pointless cheap shot
..and u know ur a nerd when u have biblical jokes
but seriously i applaud them for that and i think they are doing well!
sometimes i consider other people tho when i think about life.. sometimes we think we are up or down when in reality sometimes its the opposite
like for example E! did a true hollywood story of lottery winners and most of their lives were destroyed within a few years.. and i don't just mean them losing their money, i mean like people developing drug addictions and people being shot or kidnapped and all kinds of nonsense
then take some people who everyone says will never be anything.. like say a girl gets pregnant at a young age everyone talks behind her back and pities her but she could easily mature real quick and surpass all of her peers and be very successful
if ur down u could be moved up especially if u are humble in word and deed
and if ur up u could be moved down especially if u are arrogant
also just as in david and goliath, the team u play for certainly makes a difference!
not hating on people who do well for themselves in this world.. that is a great thing and God will likely bless u even more but remember to lean on Him even when everything looks perfect and promising!
even when u have every tool for success, remember to keep God in your life!
