Heard this little story at a convention I attended that I’m pretty sure many of us can probably relate to…
* * * * *
A master of Wisdom was walking through the countryside with his apprentice when they came to a small, disheveled shack on a meager piece of farmland.
“See this poor family,” said the Master. “Go see if they will share with us their food.”
“But we have plenty,” said the apprentice.
The master said, “Do as I say.” The obedient apprentice went to the home. The good farmer and his wife, surrounded by their seven children, came to the door. Their clothes were dirty and in tatters.
