III- Tale

[edit | edit source]

When the Eternal God created the animals of the earth, at first he did not make them a skeleton. However, he empowered the Worm's Grandfather to make skeletons for all animals. Thus, the latter summoned them all to go to his house to recover a skeleton according to each one's size. However, the earthworm, despite everyone's calls to go to his grandfather's house to take his skeleton, always put it off, claiming that the one who gives the skeletons is his grandfather and that he is in no hurry. However, one day the grandfather fell seriously ill and unfortunately died, while he was the only one who could make skeletons. This is how the earthworm ended up definitively without a skeleton.

Moral of the story: Never put off what you can do today. We don't know what the future will hold.
