For today’s story, we opted for the Lion and the Three Bull. Very timely that the lesson we got from the story was the same moral I saw in my three boys.
A Lion had been watching three Bullocks feeding in an open field. He had tried to attack them several times. But they had kept together and helped each other to drive him off. The Lion had little hope of eating them. He was no match for three strong Bullocks with their sharp horns and hoofs. However, he could not keep away from that field. It is hard to resist watching a good meal, even when there is little chance of getting it.
Then one day the Bullocks had a quarrel. And when the hungry Lion came to look at them and lick his chops as he was accustomed to doing, he found them in separate corners of the field. The three bulls were far away from one another as they could get.
It was now an easy matter for the Lion to attack them one at a time. And he proceeded to do with the greatest satisfaction and relish.
The mother and the three boys
I went out for a quick errand. When I got home, I found the house in pristine condition. The living room was in order. There were no dirty plates in the sink. All laundered clothes were neatly arranged inside the cabinet.
Union is strength
That day, I saw in my three boys the synergy. Indeed, if only everyone works together, every task would be done in no time.
