Weeds & Fish


There are 2 kinds of people in this world:
those that care more about themselves...
and those that care more about others...

Those who care more about themselves are like weeds... they do whatever is neccessary to get what they want. In essence, they "kill" the plants around them so that they can feel better.

Those who care about others are like cleaning fish. They aren't always the biggest most important people "business" wise. But without them, the bigger fish would quickly die from disease. By helping others, these cleaning fish not only survive, but obtain purpose and satisfaction.

The Bible teaches us to be like the Cleaning fish, and to put others first. Be careful not to become a weed, and hurt those around you for your own satisfaction.

Mark 12:31, John 13:13-17, Matthew 13:22
