A man was running from a ferocious, man eating tiger when he came to the edge of a cliff. He looked down at his feet and saw a rope. He grabbed the rope and shimmied down about a hundred feet when he came to the end of the rope. He looked down and saw jagged rocks three hundred feet below. He looked up and saw the tiger looking down at him, drooling. Then he looked into the edge of the cliff and saw a strawberry. He reached out, plucked the strawberry and ate it. He said aloud, “Man, that was the BEST strawberry I have ever tasted!” Now, if he had been worried about the jagged rocks in his future, or hung up on the tiger of his past, he would have never gotten to taste the strawberry that God wanted him to have in the present.
