Pursuing Our Goals

Pursuing Our Goals

In a little country community a farmer had a dog who spent part of his time sitting by the side of the highway waiting for big trucks. When the dog saw a large truck coming around the corner, he would get ready and as it passed him, he would take out after it down the road, barking and doing his best to overtake it. One day the farmer’s neighbor said, “Sam, do you think that hound of yours is ever going to catch a truck?”

“Well, Bill,” Sam replied, “That isn’t what worries me. What worries me is what he would do if he caught one.”

Many of us in life are like that hound. We give our lives to pursuing goals that would have little value if we did succeed in reaching them.
