KNOW WHAT YOU WANT

One day a boy’s mother decided she would make hot buttered biscuits as long as her son could eat them. He loved biscuits and always complained that he never got enough. He ate and ate and ate, and she kept pulling them out of the stove.

Finally she looked around and saw him sitting there looking sort of green. "What’s wrong, son, don’t you want some more biscuits?"

He answered sickishly, “No ma’am, I don’t even want the ones I’ve got."

You may get what you want, but you may not want what you’ve got after you’ve gotten it! Make sure your desires are in line with God’s will.
