A Wolf, sorely wounded by dogs, lay recovering in his lair. Being in want of food, he asked a Sheep who was passing by to fetch some water from a nearby stream. “If you will bring me drink,” he said, “I will find meat myself.” “No doubt,” said the Sheep, “If I should bring you the drink, you would make mince-meat out of me.”
The moral of the story? Hypocritical speeches are easily seen through.
How would you use this fable to teach your children?
