Monkey Trap

    A person depending on worldly comforts can be likened to a greedy monkey:

    A greedy monkey is trapped quite easily; all you need is a secured narrow neck jar or vase and some peanuts or fruit inside it. In its greediness, the monkey will grab as big a fistful as it can, quickly finding that it now can't remove its fist and the contents. Whatever the impending danger, that greedy little animal just refuses remove its hand without the contents!

    What this system offers us is mere peanuts compared to Jehovah's promises. Let go of it!
