Madmen

by Berni Dymet

Luke 12:15 And he said to them, ‘Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one's life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.'

We men are funny animals. We have this thing hardwired in our DNA - we want to be the providers and protectors of our families. And that's a good thing.  It's great actually.

But then in the madness we all rush around in - like madmen - we become so engrossed in the "providing thing". It gets a life of its own. Its like -well, we become madmen. It's like we snap inside and all of a sudden working is all that matters. Making it is all that matters. So many men are on that treadmill.

Maybe, maybe this is striking a little close to home. So let me give you this gentle word of encouragement:

What's the matter with you? Are you nuts?
