A man’s favorite donkey falls into a deep hole. He can’t pull it out no matter how hard he tries. He therefore decides to bury it alive.
Soil is poured onto the donkey from above. The donkey feels the load, shakes it off, and steps on it. More soil is poured.
It shakes it off and steps up. The more the load was poured, the higher it rose. By noon, the donkey was grazing in green pastures.
After much shaking off (of problems) And stepping up (learning from them), One will graze in GREEN PASTURES.
Lesson of this story
- When a friend is in trouble, do everything you can to help them. You might be surprised at the outcome.
- Just because someone is trying to bury (hurt, offend, upset, sadden) you does not mean you have to sit there and sulk. Shake it off and use it to step up in life.
- There is going to be sand (problems) at different points in your life and the best thing for you to do is learn from them and then move on.
