 The Town Mouse and the Field Mouse (Luther)

 

The Town Mouse and the Field Mouse
(by Martin Luther)

A town mouse was taking a walk when it met a field mouse. The latter was enjoying acorns, grains and nuts and whatever else she could find. But the town mouse said: “Why would you want to live in poverty like this! Come with me and I will secure enough delicious foods for both of us.”

The field mouse moved with her into a wonderfully pretty house in which the town mouse lived. And they went into pantries which were bursting with meat, bacon, sausages, bread, cheese and so much more. The town mouse said: “Now eat and enjoy! Such foods I have every day in abundance.”

But then the waiter came and rumbled with the key at the door. The mice started and ran off. The town mouse soon found her hole but the field mouse did not know where to go, she ran along the walls and believed her life over.

But as the waiter was gone again, the town mouse said: “Now the danger is over. Let’s enjoy ourselves.”

The field mouse replied: “That’s easy for you to say. You knew where to find your hole while I almost died of fright. I will tell you my opinion: You stay a town mouse and eat sausages and bacon but I will stay a poor, little field mouse and eat my acorns. You are not ever safe from the waiter, from the cat, from the oh so many mouse-traps and the whole house is your enemy. I am free of all that and safe in my poor field hole.”

Who has got wealth, has many worries.

Amen~!

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:11-13
