How Much is Enough

THE DOG AND HIS REFLECTIONImage credit mythfolklore.net

 

Many of you may have heard the story of The Greedy Dog but how many of you grasped the moral of the story. In life there are people who behave like this dog.  Life pours many blessings on them but it is not enough.  They get opportunities that others are denied but it is still not enough. The more they receive the more their desire for more increase.  It is always more, more, more. Well we all know what happened to the greedy dog.  He saw his reflection in the water and of course he wanted the other bone. He opened his mouth to bark at what he thought was the other dog and in the process lost his own bone.

In life always give thanks. If your blessings are small, give thanks. If they are many, give thanks. Do not be like the greedy dog who was envious of his own shadow.  Be satisfied and give thanks.
