A father used to say to his children when they were young: “When you all reach the age of 12, I will tell you the secret of life.” One day when the oldest child turned 12, he anxiously asked his father what was the secret of life.
The father replied that he was going to tell him, but that he should not reveal it to his brothers. The father told him: “The secret of life is this: The cow does not give milk.” “What are you saying?” asked the boy shockingly!
“As you hear it, son: The cow does not give milk, you have to milk it. You have to get up at 4 in the morning, go to the field, walk through the corral full of manure, tie the tail, hobble the legs of the cow, sit on the stool, place the bucket and do the work yourself.
” That is the secret of life; the cow does not give milk. You milk her or you don’t get milk. There is this generation that thinks that cows GIVE milk, that things are automatic and free; their mentality is “I wish, I ask, I claim it now and I obtain now.” They have been accustomed to getting whatever they want the easy way…But no, life is not a matter of wishing, asking and obtaining.
The things that one receives are the effort of what one does. Happiness is the result of effort. Lack of effort creates frustration. Never go through life with the mentality that the government, parents, friends, your pastor, etc, is going to give your family, business, or ministry everything they need in life. “Cows don’t give milk; you have to work for it.” No wonder Colin Powell opined: “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
” Gordon B. Hinckley penned: “Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.” God forbid! Determine to double your work rate even when you DO NOT FEEL LIKE IT! You shall eat the fruit of your labour and your “cow milk” shall NEVER end in Jesus name.
