Beware the Elephants!

Posted on April 29th, 2015

Just last week a local witch doctor took a taxi to the forest reserve to hunt for special roots and leaves for his traditional practice.  Upon arriving at the forest reserve, the taxi driver expressed concern as a large herd of elephant were feeding nearby.  The witch doctor replied that he had no business with the elephants and they had no business with him.  So off he went into their midst.  Soon the taxi driver heard trumpeting and chaos and immediately called the police, who found the witch doctor had been trampled by the enraged elephants. 

The saddest part of this story is that he trusted in his power and left reason at home.  How foolish to walk amongst these huge beasts knowing how dangerous they are! 

Don’t we often do that in our daily lives?  We trust in our strength and think we can handle the situation, when clearly we need to rely on God and trust in Him to give us rational thought and action.

Hopefully, we can learn from this unfortunate man.  Hope you have a blessed day and walk with God.
