One day a Farmer’s Donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours and the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally, although sad, he decided that he could not let him suffer and as the well was also dry the kindest thing to do for the donkey was to fill it in.
He invited all his neighbours to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.
At first, the donkey cried horribly, everyone felt sorry for the Donkey but could see no other way to help it not suffer.
Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw…
With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing…
He would shake it off and take a step up.
So the farmer’s neighbours quickly continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, and were excited to see him shake it off and take a step up.
Pretty soon, the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!
Sometimes in life we feel like dirt is being shovelled on us all kinds of dirt…
The answer to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up.
Each of our troubles can be a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! by shaking it off and taking a step up.
