A guy attended a wedding and after the wedding, the people gradually took their seats at the nearby reception hall. He sat at the front seat. Then a lady started distributing food from the back and unfortunately, it didn’t reach those at the front.

Another lady started sharing drinks, but it was from the front, and unfortunately, this guy had already changed his seat to the back. Again, the drink didn’t reach him. The guy was so furious and he stood up to take his leave.

But then he saw three ladies each with a big bowl, this time, he tried to be wise by seating at the middle. To his utmost surprise, one of the ladies started sharing from the front, and the second lady started distributing from the back. It was peppered fried turkey meat. When it got to the middle where he was seated, it was finished again.

Feeling so frustrated, he bent his head without really looking at any face. But then, the third lady tapped him and stretched her bowl that he should pick… He stretched his hand, only to touch toothpick in the bowl.

Lessons: Always exercise patience, God will locate you where you are. Don’t compromise your faith by changing your position or seat, God knows your seat! Hold on to your faith and trust in God because the race does not belong to the swift. Never prove to be so smart and miss His blessings because His blessing makes rich without sorrow.
