Imagine you are sitting in that chair, with a marshmallow on the plate and you have to sit there for 20 minutes without eating it, in order to have a second. Could you succeed?
Can you be patient all that time, knowing it is staring at you? EAT ME!
Can you ignore it for all that time? EAT ME!
Do you feel weak? EAT ME!
Are you really hungry? EAT ME!
What is your reward going to be? EAT ME NOW!
By being patient and waiting, your reward will be infinitely greater.
Give us wisdom to recognise temptation and the strength to resist.
