NPR’s “This American Life” shared a story about a father whose daughter became fascinated with Jesus at Christmastime. She wanted to know more about the manger and shepherds, so the father bought a children’s Bible and began to read to her about Jesus’ birth and teaching and what it all meant. The little girl especially loved what Jesus said about doing unto others what you would have them do to you.
Aesop wrote a fable about a donkey who discovered a lion's skin. He tried it on, strutted around, and scared many animals. Soon a fox came along and the donkey tried to frighten him, too. But when the fox heard the donkey's voice, the fox said, "If you want to terrify me, you'll have to disguise your bray." Aesop's moral? Clothes may disguise a fool, but his words always give him away.
