The tiger and the fox

A man walking through the forest saw a fox that had lost its legs and wondered how it lived. Then he saw a tiger come through the trees with game in her mouth. The tiger had her fill and left the rest for the fox.

“God is surely good” thought the man. The next day, the tiger came back with more meat and again the injured fox did not starve. The man continued to contemplate God’s greatness and said to himself, “I too shall just rest in a corner with full trust in the Lord and he will provide me with all that I need.”

He did this for many days but nothing happened. He was almost at death’s door when he heard a voice within say,
“O you who are in the path of error, open you eyes to the truth! Follow the example of the tiger and stop imitating the disabled fox.”
