Jewish Farmer and the Rabbi

Sermon Illustration

A Jewish farmer lived in a one-room house with his wife, four children, his two parents and three friends. The noise and confusing made his sick and frenzied. He went to his Rabbi for advice. The Rabbi said brings in the chickens and a goat. The man went home and did so. It was worse than even. He went back to complain to the Rabbi who said bring in a donkey. The noise and chaotic was more horrendous then ever. The man, crazed, went back to the Rabbi who said, “Take out the animals.” After the man was home for a day, he noticed a great sense of relief and peace.
