A Boy and His Father

| by Dr. Lynda Torrey, under Inspiration

I love this excerpt.  What a beautiful way to think about teamwork!

A boy and his father were walking along a road when they came across a large stone.  The boy said to his father, “Do you think if I use all my strength, I can move this rock?”  His father answered, “If you use all your strength, I am sure you can do it.”  The boy began to push the rock.  Exerting himself as much as he could, he pushed and pushed.  The rock did not move.  Discouraged, he said to his father, “You were wrong.  I can’t do it.”  His father placed his arm around the boy’s shoulder and said, “No, son.  You didn’t use all your strength – you didn’t ask me to help.”
