FABLE OF THE PORCUPINE

It was the coldest winter ever.  Many animals died because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions. 

After a while, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.

Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive. 

The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person’s good qualities. 

The moral of the story is: Too often, we won’t stand back to back because we’ve been irritated in the past by another person’s words or actions. If we are to succeed we must be able to close ranks and work together. 

A good call for the true churches of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” (‭John‬ ‭13‬:‭34-35‬ NASB)


Until Next Time
