"They were about to make Him king"

     You have to firmly tell yourself (decide) what you want to do in life, what you want to be:  a minister, a representative, a politician, a professor, a doctor, an architect, a teacher, a mechanic, a hairdresser, a chimney cleaner, a wife, a husband, a parent.  Consider your favorite pursuits, talents, predispositions, and traits, which validate making this or another choice.  And you have to constantly implement your intent.  Reject supplementary education, propositions and invitations and select only these options, which lead you to the right goal. 
     Otherwise you will become neither this nor that, or simply nobody; you will be thrashing about like a fish in the net; once this way and then the other.  It is easy to loose your had that way, to waste your life.

Fr. M.M.
