Hercules and the Wagoner

Posted on: October 21, 2012


Once upon a time there was a kind farmer. He lived with his four small children near his farmyard. He was very hardworking and an honest man.

He had a labor that was very lazy and careless. He only loved to eat and sleep whenever he got time.

One rainy day his master asked him to take the stack of hay to the city to sell.

The labor, John, being easygoing drove the wagon hastily along a muddy road.  The wheels got jammed in the clay. Even the horses could no longer pull the load.

The Wagoner got down, and without making any effort to free the cart from the mud, began to pray for Hercules, (the god of strength) to come and help him out of his trouble.

But Hercules, irritated by the man’s laziness, called down from above: “Get up, lazy person! Instead of asking help from heavens, put your shoulder to the wheel.”

The labor had no other option but to follow the advice 🙂

 

MORAL OF THE STORY:

God helps those who help themselves.
