A man walking through the forest came across a fox that had lost its legs. “How can a fox with no legs possibly survive with no means to hunt for food?” So, keeping his distance, he waited and he watched so he might discover the miracle of the Fox’s ability to survive.
And then, something amazing. At first he could hear the brush rustling in the distance, and as the sound drew closer he beheld a tiger approaching the fox. At first, he thought that the fox was a sure gonner but then, he noticed that the tiger held game in its mouth. The man watched as the tiger ate, and when satisfied the tiger nudged what remained toward the fox. And the fox ate and was satisfied.
Over the next 3 days, the man watched as God, through the Tiger, fed the fox and saved him from hunger. The man was so much in awe of God’s greatness that he decided that he, too, would just rest in a corner with full trust that the Lord would provide for his every need.
He did this for many days. Nothing happened. Being almost at death’s door with starvation, he heard the voice of God. “O you who are in the path of error, open your eyes to the truth! Stop imitating the disabled fox and follow the example of the Tiger.
