SHORT TERM/LONG TERM

I just took a look at the lesson I’m scheduled to teach to the eleven-year-olds this Sunday and noticed it’s about Esau, who gave up his birthright for some pottage, in other words, food. My first reaction to that story is, How could anybody do that? But then I realized I go for the instant gratification a little too often. Chocolate comes to mind.

Here’s something my neighbor Mark Weiler came up with regarding short term vs. long term choices. If you should decide to use it or share it as well, please make sure you add “by Mark Weiler” so Mark can get credit for writing it.

On the other hand . . .
