A wealthy businessman was disturbed to find a fisherman sitting lazily beside his boat. "Why aren't you out fishing?" he asked.

"Because I've caught enough for today," the old man replied.

"Why don't you catch more than enough for today?" the rich man demanded.

"What would I do with them then?" asked the old fisherman.

"You could sell the fish each day and buy a better boat and go farther and catch more fish. eventually you could have a whole fleet of fishing boats and be rich like me," lectured the rich man.

"Then what?? asked the fisherman.

"Why then you could sit back and relax like me and really enjoy your life," said the businessman smiling.

As the fisherman calmly looked out over the water, he replied to the wealthy man, "What do you think I'm doing now?"

Having food and clothing, let us be content. (1 Tim. 6:8)
