Reading in Africa


Recommended Posts

A young missionary on his first trip to Africa is away from camp having

devotions in a quiet clearing, as was his custom. This one

particular day, while reading his Bible, a lion comes and lays down

right beside him; so close that the hot warm smell of his breath is

wafting over him. He is, as you would suppose, exceedingly uneasy. He

closes his eyes, praying... but when he opens them he sees another

approach from the brush, which proceeds to lie down on the other side of



Convinced as he is that this is a test of his faith, he determines to

return to his Bible reading. As soon as he does so, the two

lions pounce upon and devour him.


Moral of the story: Don't read between the "lions."
