My guinea pigs get treats regularly, which they love. When they hear the rustle of a bag, they wheek, in hopes that the bag might contain something special for them.
Today, I was passing out molasses, raisin, and oatmeal horse treats. They come as three circles together as a triangle and I usually break them apart so each pig gets one section.
Sometimes when I pass out the treats, sometimes one pig is concentrating so hard on his neighbor getting a treat that he misses when I drop a treat into his cage. Because he is worried about what his neighbor has, he misses out on what good stuff I just gave him.
It made me wonder – how many times and I so focused on what someone else has that I miss what God has given me?
