Jack’s Winning Words 1/11/17
“You can only wear one pair of pants at a time.”  (Charles F. Feeney)  C.F. Feeney grew up during the Great Depression and learned the difference between a want and a need.  He doesn’t own a car.  He rents an apartment.  He was a billionaire, but has given away most of his fortune.  He wants to die “broke.”  Warren Buffett calls him, “My hero!”  When TV ads try to tell us that a want is a need, click on, MUTE!  Learn from Chuck…Every want is not a need!      ;-)  Jack  

FROM TRIHARDER:  You can only dance at one wedding at a time.  Mine:  you can't ride two horses with one tuchas.====JACK:  I'll bet there's a Yiddish term for just about everything.

FROM TARMART REV:  I "needed" to be reminded of that this morning!!====JACK:  Have you heard the story of Kagawa (Google him), the Japanese Christian?  He could never keep a shirt on his back, because he always seemed to find someone who needed it more than he did.

FROM TL IN MICHIGAN:  So good today!  Thank you!====JACK:  I suppose you've heard the saying: "There are no pockets in a shroud."

FROM ST PAUL IN MESA:  good words today, Jack.  thanks!   separating our needs from our greeds is a very important lesson to learn in life.====JACK:  Pastors can be subject to avarice, too.

FROM CHESTER THE GOOD:  Sounds to me like he has a great guilt complex.====JACK:  If that's the case, more people need a complex like that...because most of us seem to have a non-guilt complex when it comes to the inequality of wealth.

FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY:  Boy, that's the truth.  We actually have very few needs but the wants are long lists!!!====JACK:  Jesus said, "Where your heart is, there is your treasure."
