Monkey Trap

How many of you have heard of a monkey trap?
Well, if you haven't allow me to explain.. Like this picture there is a box, and in the box are bananas, apples, all kinds of fruit, something that is appealing. The hole in the box, however, is just big enough to get the monkey's hand in the box. When he grabs the food he isn't able to get his hand out. The monkey just doesn't want to let go of that fruit so he will try and try and TRY to get his hand out, and isn't able to and becomes trapped. We can see that as the monkey is trapped his freedom is taken away, and can no longer do anything else.
Think about whats going on in your life... What are your banana's? Apples? Or other fruits? How long will you hold on and not let go?

  1. I love that story! And it's very true. What little things do we refuse to give up that are "trapping" us?
