AS YOU SOW, SO SHALL YOU REAP.
Once upon a time a flea saw an ox grazing in a pasture. He knew that oxen work for men in their farms. But he didn’t like it. He was proud that he fed on men’s blood and yet didn’t do anything for them.
Approaching the ox, the flea asked, “How is it so that you work for men though you are quite big and strong? Look at me, I never do anything for them and yet feed on their blood though I am so small.”
The ox was surprised to hear what the flea had said and replied, “If I work for men, they are very kind to me. They take care of mine in every way, feed me, shelter me and moreover, pat me on my back, head and neck out of love and affection.
On the other hand, you feed on their blood and they are always up to destroy you.”
