Please Don't Feed the Ducks

On my lunch break today, I felt tempted to go to the internet cafe round the corner to watch one of my old programs.... nuh uh - red alert! That's way too dangerous; clearly a ploy of the addiction/yetzer harah... So instead, I went and sat by a beautiful lake with ducks and colorful trees.


I saw an interesting sign: 'please don't feed the ducks! They have all they need in the water and bread makes them sick'. I thought, "Wow, a clear message from Hashem. We're the ducks. Hashem gives us all we need, and yet we often search for extras that makes us sick." Please don't feed the ducks!
