There was a barber in a small local town who had been the only

barber in town for years. Everyone went to this barber to get their hair cut. Then, one day a big hair salon franchise came to town and opened up shop. They advertised, "All Haircuts for $3.00"

Slowly, the barber's business began to dwindle. He just couldn't compete. In a last ditch effort to save his business, he hired a business consultant. The consultant spent a day pouring over the barber's books asking many questions. At the end of the day the barber asked the

consultant, "So what do you think ? Should I close up shop?" The consultant said, "Not yet. I'll be back tomorrow."

The next day, the consultant showed up with a huge banner that he hung in front of the barber shop that said, "We Fix $3.00 Haircuts!"

That's what the world has done, sold out for a cheap price. We try to fix ourselves, and we are fixable, but it takes God.
