The Mouse Trap


A mouse looked through a crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife opening a package; what food might it contain?

He was aghast to discover that it was a mouse trap!
Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning, “There is a mouse trap in the house, there is a mouse trap in the house.”

The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, “Mr. Mouse, I can tell you this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me; I cannot be bothered by it.”

The mouse turned to the pig and told him, “There is a mouse trap in the house.”
“I am so very sorry Mr. Mouse,” sympathized the pig, “but there is nothing I can do about it but pray; be assured that you are in my prayers.”
The mouse turned to the cow, who replied, “Like wow, Mr. Mouse, a mouse trap; am I in grave danger, Duh?”
So the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected to face the farmer’s mouse trap alone.
That very night a sound was heard throughout the house, like the sound of a mouse trap catching its prey. The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught.
In the darkness, she did not see that it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught.
The snake bit the farmer’s wife.
The farmer rushed her to the hospital.
She returned home with a fever. Now everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup’s main ingredient.
His wife’s sickness continued so that friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig.
The farmer’s wife did not get well, in fact, she died, and so many people came for her funeral the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide meat for all of them to eat.
So the next time you hear that someone is facing a problem and think that it does not concern you, remember that when the least of us is threatened, we are all at risk.
“Do not forget to do good and to help one another, because these are the sacrifices that please God.” – Hebrews 13:16.

Explanations to Love and Marriage


Hello friends, I just wish to share a few thoughts with you on the above topics. Please take out some time and read through. Thank you.

A student asked his teacher, ‘what is love?’

The teacher said, ‘in order to answer your question, go to the poultry farm, choose the biggest cockerel and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick.’ the student went to the field went through the first row, he saw one big cockerel but he wondered…maybe there is a bigger one.

Then he saw a bigger one and wonders yet again,…maybe there is even a bigger one waiting for him. Later, when he finished more than half of the poultry farm, he started to realize that the cockerel is not as big as d previous one he saw; he knew he had missed the biggest one, and he felt bad. So, he ended up going back to the teacher empty handed.
The teacher told him, ‘this is love. You keep looking for a better one, but when you realize later, you have already missed the person who should have been, you find it hard or impossible to turn back the hands of time.’

The student then asks, ‘in that case, what is marriage?’ the teacher said, ‘in order to answer your question, go to the corn field, choose the biggest corn and come back.’ but the rule remains: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick.’
The student went to the corn field, this time he is careful not to repeat the previous mistake, when he reached the middle of the field, he picked one big corn in the middle that he felt satisfied with and went back. The teacher told him, ‘this time you brought a corn. You looked for one that is just nice. You had faith and believe this is the best one you can get…this is marriage.’

Find inspiration from this and learn. Don’t fall prey to temptations. Be wise and stay safe and happy.
