While Michael and George were walking together on a long exhausting trip, a bear appeared to them suddenly. Michael climbed a tree and left his friend George alone with the bear. George couldn’t do anything but lie down on the ground and pretend to be dead because bears don’t eat dead bodies.
The Bear came and approached George’s ear while he held his breath completely. When the bear thought that George was dead he left him.
Michael got down from the tree and said to his friend, “What was the bear saying to you?”
George said, ”The bear advised me not to travel with somebody who can’t help me and face danger with me.”
Michael felt very embarrassed.
In the hard times, everybody leaves me.
But You are the only one who stands with me.
You are my shield and refuge.
Though I walk through the den of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; for You are with me.
The Sick Lion and the Wise Fox
