Did you know that all you have to do to catch a monkey is to put a treat in something that is anchored well with a hole in it just big enough for the monkey to get its hand in? It will get the treat but will not be able to get its hand out with its hand in a fist. It will not let go of the treat even though it means giving up its freedom.
You probably all know that if you drop a frog into hot water it will jump out. If, however, you put it in cool water and then gradually warm the water the frog will die in the hot water. It doesn't realize it is slowly dieing.
These are true stories.
Are you a monkey and will not let go of the eating that is gradually killing you as if you were a frog that doesn't know enough to get out of the danger?
