    For me, this means that we think far too small and generally about all the wrong things. If I am going to have faith in God, I have to stop trying to dictate the terms of my blessings and trust that in whatever form it comes, it will be just what I need. (Ok, I’m about to start preaching to myself so thanks for getting it started 🙂 )

    If you need 5 dollars, ask for 10, don’t ask for 3.

    A) one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, or
    B) even when God has provided all that one has asked for, man will never be satisfied.

    The moral – wow! So many lessons 🙂 The ultimate moral is “distraction” … the entire time I was reading, in the back of my mind, I am thinking – how did he get in the middle of the ocean, did he learn any lessons, and when is he going to be asked to be delivered to land out of his turmoil; shelter. Afterall he had faith enough to ask for “things.” So ultimately, he became distracted by the ideal that he ask and recieves forgetting he was stranded. He was so distracted that he didn’t ask to be removed from the water, nor did he ask for a helpmeet – he asked to “meet” a woman, which he did. He never pondered the question of what his core needed versus what his flesh wanted. The lady severed her ties with the pleasures of the world, took what she needed, remained focus (didnt become distracted by things) and set on her way to find land, dry land. Where she can be a light on a hill for which she’s destined. That’s my take! 🙂 Thx for posting!
