A Boy Learns to Use All of His Strength

Summary

“I am working so hard to clear this stump. I am getting nowhere,” a son exhorts. “My son, why don’t you use all of your strength,” his father questions.

A father and son are working in their garden.

The young boy struggles to remove a large stump of a tree that was blocking him from planting.

Working nearby, the father saw his son hacking furiously at the stump, and not succeeding.

He approached his son and asked: “What’s wrong son? You seem troubled.”

The son replied:  “I am working so hard to clear this stump.  I am getting nowhere.”

The father said:  “My son, why don’t you use all of your strength?”

“I am!” the son replied.

The father said:  “Don’t you realize that my strength is also your strength?  Let us do this together.”

They tackled the stump with their joined strength and the path was cleared.
