The Two Drunks


Two drunks walked along a wharf one dark night, climbed into a small boat, and determined to row to the other side of the lake. The first drunk rowed for one and a half hours. Sweat poured from his brow until he collapsed. The second drunk took the oars and rowed for three hours. He collapsed, exhausted. When they awoke at sunrise, they found that they had made only one mistake. They were still tied to the wharf. Are you still tied to the wharf of self-will? Is the Christian life one of labor and sorrow? Is it one of struggle, sweat, and misery? Then it may be that you have never cut the ropes from the wharf of self-will. Today, abandon yourself to a faithful Creator. Don't wait any longer! Pull out the pin of self-will, and then place yourself as a hand grenade into the Hand of Almighty God. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
