Something happened to a close friend of mine this week and I got to thinking about how responsible we are for actions we take, decisions we make, its funny but a small decision can actually turn ones whole life upside down. Josh Hinds mailed this story to me and I found it quite intriguing and decided to share.
Four brothers decided to have a party to celebrate a new business venture.
Since wine is rather expensive, they agreed
that each one would bring an equal quantity and
mix it together in a large serving bowl.
One of the brothers thought he might escape making his
contribution by bringing water instead of wine. "It won't be
noticed in the common bowl," he reasoned.
But when, at the party, the wine was poured out, it turned
out not to be wine at all, but plain water. All four
brothers had thought alike - cheap. Each one had thought,
"Let the other do it."
This is a lesson in responsibility,

your choices and decisions. Either that or turn your
life over to someone else who might not have your best
interest in mind."
