Why Not You?

Why Not You?

A man wandered for many years, searching for happiness. Much came into his possession, but no joy remained. He came to Jacob and stood weeping, complaining about how he had been cheated in life. Eventually, he turned his head toward Jacob and moaned, “Why me? Why me?” And Jacob answered, “Why not you? You’ve looked everywhere else.”
