There is a story in the Bible, I know one of my friends often references Bible stories as fairy tales. Ok...But there was this story about three fellas that didn't have time on their hands to see about an urgent matter.
The Biblical story is often called the story of the Good Samaritan. This week I read a line that made me think about these three men. It appeared to me from the story these three fellas had other appointments that they felt would not allow them to address the matter at hand.
"Urgent problems should never demand an appointment."
As I heard a man recently say when faced with observing misfortune on the part of another do three things: One--Look across the road Two--Cross the road Three--Then say "Tell me more."
Say by the way, fairy tales often have a lesson.
