From Jackrabbit Factor, we learn that finding and eating “sandwiches” on the path might not be the ultimate goal, but it can provide sustenance and energy for chasing the next “rabbit”. (Read it for the full analogy)
It other words, don’t begrudge the sandwich.
Will Davis put it this way. He said:
“I took a break from looking for jackrabbits to enjoy a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on the path, before picking up the search [again], and being led to the right one.”
Notice: he allowed himself to ENJOY the sandwich, and then he caught his rabbit more easily.
Sometimes we have to give ourselves permission to rest and refuel. It’s not just ALL about rabbits.
We thank God for sandwiches, too.
