The man and the Scorpion
An old man saw a scorpion drowning and
decided to pull it out from the water.
He calmly extended his hand to reach the
creature. When he did, the scorpion stung
him. With the effect of the pain, the old man
let go the creature and it fell backinto the
water.

The man realizing that the scorpion was
drowning again, got back and tried to rescue
it but then again it stung him. He let go of it
again.

A young boy standing by, approached the old
man and said,”excuse me Sir, youare going to
hurt yourself trying to
save the evil-vicious creature, why do you
insist? Don’t you realize that eachtime you try
to help the scorpion, it stings you?”
The man replied, “the nature of the scorpion
is to sting and mine is to help. It will not
change in helping the scorpion.”
So the man thought for a while and used a
leaf from a nearby tree and pulledthe
scorpion out from the water and saved it’s
life.

MORAL LESSON:
Do not change your nature. If someone hurts
you, just take precautions.
Some pursue happiness while others create it.
Let your conscience be your guide in
whatever you do.

NOTE:
When life presents you with a thousand
reasons to cry, show it that you have a
thousand reasons or more to smile.More
importantly, always be the reason for the
smile!

If you want Almighty God to protect you from
scopion sting (enemies, hatred, sin,poverty
e.t.c)
