The Farmer & The Donkey – Take A Step Up!


One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well.
The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally he decided the animal was old, the well needed to be covered up anyway and it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him.
They each grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.
At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.
Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well,
and was astonished at what he saw.


As every shovel of dirt hit his back, the donkey did something amazing.
He would shake it off and take a step up.
As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal,
he would shake it off and take a step up. 

Pretty soon, everyone was amazed, as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off.

The Moral:
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt.
The trick is to shake it off and take a step up.
Each of our troubles is a stepping-stone.


We can get out of the deepest wells by not stopping and never giving up!

Shake it off and take a step up!
