APRIL 24

The Simple-Minded

"How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? And the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?” - Proverbs 1:22

A Greek named Demosthenes was once addressing a bored and listless audience, so he told them a story.

“Once there was a man struggling with a great load. Along came another man with a donkey and said, ‘Rent my donkey, and he'll carry your load.’ He did. Later, as they tried to find relief from the hot sun, they began to argue over who owned the donkey's shade.”

At this point, Demosthenes walked off the stage. The audience became agitated, wanting to know how the argument was resolved. Demosthenes returned and said, "Earlier, I was talking about issues of life and death, and you were bored. But now you're all worked up about who owns the shade of a donkey!"

Demosthenes’ audience was a simple-minded bunch. They tuned out issues of serious truth but were entranced with the trivial. How about you?
