Our lives are like empty CRATES, our REACTIONS to what nature brings our way (actions, opportunities, challenges) determines what will be in our crates and to what extent they will be filled.
CRATE quietly sits in the word REACTion and that’s not a coincidence. To what extent your crate will be filled and with what content is greatly determined by your RESPONSE to nature. Nature here means everything around you, living and non living things. Some reactions TAKE from your crate while others ADD to your crate.
When a man masters how to control his reactions, and his response to nature is based on a well thought action, he will begin to live a life that puts more in his crate than takes away from him. This doesn’t mean he will be an oppressor, NO. It means his ACTIONS will become more PRODUCTIVE.
What is in your crate? To what extent is your crate filled? Do your reactions to life build you up or do they drain you?
