Martin Luther’s parable – JAM

Martin Luther once told a parable of two mountain goats who were traveling opposite directions on a narrow mountain ledge. When they met, neither could pass without plunging to their death. They couldn’t turn around without likewise falling. So then what did they to do? One goat laid down, and the other passed over the other’s back and both lived. If they had fought, both would have been destroyed. But when one humbled himself, both were able to live. As we pass through this life dealing with a thousand and one situations that arise ever new, may we always remember that the wisest choice is not always to meet a problem head-on. Sometimes it is better to lead with knees instead of the left. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
