Moralitic Story

Well, come on let's go, let's go, little darlin'
Tell me that you'll never leave me
Come on, come on, let's go again and again and again and again
-i watched La Bamba AGAIN last night-

my maths teacher aka Lau Ban/Boss used to tell us this story since we sucked with add maths.

there used to be a priest, who lived through a very pious life his whole life. he never sinned, he practically had a golden ticket to heaven with his way of living.

unfortunately he ran into some problems. see, the church he headed, had run into some financial problems due to unforseen circumstances. he was trying to figure the best and fastest way to solve it, since he had many obligations to be done.

he thought hard, and he thought long.

finally he decided, he'll try his luck with lottery! he knew it wasnt a sure shot, but he had no other options. he needed money fast.

so he prayed each night. asking God for help, let him strike lottery.

let him strike so he doesnt have to shut the church down.

let him strike so he can continue to serve the people.

let him strike coz he's never sinned.

let him strike coz he's been following all God's teaching.

let him strike etc etc...

every night he kneeled down by his bed and said a prayer like that.

FINALLY...

God said:

i had, a very long time, agreed to fulfil your prayer since you've been so good. but...



GO AND BUY THE DARN LOTTERY TICKET! HOW U WANNA STRIKE IF U DONT EVEN BUY A TICKET?! YOU EXPECT ME TO BUY FOR U? YOU CANT EXPECT THE TICKET TO FALL GRACEFULLY ONTO YOUR LAP! so buy the ticket FIRST, then talk about striking next time!

moral of the story:

without effort, dont even think about success. nothing's gonna fall into your life for free.

except misery.
