Advent Stories

1. A donkey was tied to a tree. A demon came and released him. The donkey entered the field of a farmer and began to eat everything. The farmer’s wife saw the donkey and was afraid that he would destroy the farm, took the rifle and killed him.
The donkey’s owner saw the dead donkey, got angry and also took his rifle and fired at the woman, killing her. When the farmer got home and saw that his wife was dead, he killed the donkey's owner.
The donkey owner's sons seeing their dead father, burned the farmers field. The farmer in retaliation killed them.
When they asked the demon what he had done, he said: "I did nothing, I just released the donkey."
Do you get it? The devil doesn’t have power to do much, but one simple thing he does triggers the evil intents of men’s hearts to harm one another.
_*So, let's think before seeking revenge! Be careful with your heart, because many times, the only thing the devil does is “release the donkey”.

2. On a freezing night, a billionaire met an old poor man outside his house. He asked him, "Don't you feel cold outside, without a coat?" The old man replied, "I got used to that." The billionaire replied, "Wait. I will bring you one." The poor man got so happy. The billionaire entered his house, got busy and forgot the poor man. In the morning he remembered the old man. He went out but he found him dead because of the cold but he left a NOTE, "When I didn't have warm clothes, I had the power to fight the cold because I was used to it but when you promised to help me, I got attached to your promise and that took my power of resisting."
MORAL: This is a season of promises and hope: Don't promise anything if you can't keep your promise. It might not mean anything to you, but it could mean everything to someone else.

3. A lost dog strays into a jungle. A lion sees this from a distance and says with caution “This guy looks edible, never seen his kind before”. So the lion starts rushing towards the dog with menace.*_
The dog notices and starts to panic but as he’s about to run he sees some bones next to him and gets an idea and says loudly “mmm…that was some good lion meat!”. The lion abruptly stops and says ” woah! This guy seems tougher then he looks, I better leave while I can”.
Over by the tree top, a monkey witnessed everything. Evidently, the monkey realizes that he can benefit from this situation by telling the lion and getting something in return. So the monkey proceeds to tell the lion what really happened and the lion says angrily “get on my back, we’ll get him together”. So they start rushing back to the dog.
_*The dog sees them and realized what happened and starts to panic even more. He then gets another idea and shouts “Where the hell is that monkey! I told him to bring me another lion an hour ago…”

4.  In an ancient temple, a number of pigeons lived happily on roof top. When the renovation of the temple began for the annual temple feast the pigeons relocated themselves to a Church nearby. The existing pigeons in the Church accommodated the new comers very well._ _*Christmas was nearing and the Church was given a face-lift, All the pigeons had to move out and look for another place. They were fortunate to find a place in a Mosque nearby. The pigeons in the Mosque welcomed them happily. It was Ramadan time and the Mosque was repainted. All the pigeons now came to the same ancient temple._
One day the pigeons on top found some clashes below in a market square. The baby pigeon asked the mother pigeon "Who are these people ? The mother replied; they are "Human beings". The baby asked, "But why are they fighting with each other...?" The mother said "These human beings going to temple are called 'Hindus' and the people going to Church are called 'Christians' and the people going to Mosque are called 'Muslims'.
The Baby pigeon asked, "Why is it so? When we were in the Temple we were called Pigeons, when we were in the church we were called Pigeons and when we were in the Mosque, we were called Pigeons. Similarly they should be called just 'Human beings' wherever they go"?
_*The mother Pigeon said, "You and me and our Pigeon friends have experienced God and that's why we are living here in a highly elevated place peacefully. These people are yet to experience God. Hence they are living below us and fighting each other."
