Recently I read about the best way to trap a monkey. A hunter will place glass jars with a narrow opening and fill them with some peanuts. The monkey will smell the food, find it and place his hand into the jar enabling him to take hold of it. The monkey will refuse to drop the peanuts to free himself. This is how the hunter can easily trap a monkey. What initially amazed me about this story was what a small item you need to catch a monkey. Later I thought about how it is also amazing how small things in life will totally trap people. Issues such as fear, bitterness, anger, jealously, envy, pride, low self esteem, discipline, addictions, complacency and attitude. I realize these are not necessarily “small” things but big things that started out as small things and grew huge. We get trapped when we refuse to open up our hand and let go. Is there anything in your life that you are clasping onto that you need to drop?
