Teen Chat with Tentie
THE sun is blazing again — we may have bought raincoats and umbrellas for the rainy season — but indications are that sunscreens, sunhats and sunglasses are needed urgently to contain the overnight climatic twist. Away from the weather, I hope your February is okay with or without a Valentine’s gift. Love you and remember to put on sunscreens always.
A long time ago in the animal kingdom, a sheep was passing and saw a lion crying trapped inside a cage and the lion begged the sheep to save him with a promise not to kill and eat him but the sheep refused. After much persuasion and for the sheep’s gullibility it opened the cage for the lion.
Now the lion was very hungry having stayed in the cage for days without food, it quickly grabbed the sheep to kill and eat, but the sheep reminded him of his promise
They were still there arguing when other animals that were passing, came and asked on what had happened. Both the lion and the sheep narrated their own side of the story but because of fear and in trying to gain favour in the sight of the lion, all the animals took side with the lion except the tortoise who claimed not to understand the whole scenario.
Now the tortoise asked the lion to show them where he was before the sheep rescued him, he pointed at the cage.
He asked again: “Were you inside or outside when the sheep arrived?” The lion said he was inside. The tortoise again said: “Ok, enter let us see how difficult it could be inside”. The lion entered and the tortoise locked him back inside.
In amazement the other animals asked tortoise “why” and he replied: “If we allow him eat the sheep today, he will still go hungry tomorrow and we don’t know who will be the next to be eaten amongst us.
Moral: Do not support evil today because it doesn’t affect you directly, tomorrow it could be your turn. Have a blessed week. #WhatsApp
