"The Elephant and the Bird Heard It"

There was a sound in the forest. It was the sound of coming danger. Many of the animals heard it. Some paid attention and others didn't. Then, SWOOSH came the swallowing, thunderous typhoon waters!!!

The elephant heard it. He has the biggest ears in the forest, but thought he was so strong and big that he didn't pay attention. His heart wasn't willing to heed. He just kept walking on towards the danger. The smallest little bird heard it with it's little ears you could hardly see on it's colorful head. It flew away really fast from the danger. He had a humble willing heart to heed.


Just because you hear something, doesn't mean your heart is willing to listen. It's important to pay attention!
