I WILL NOT VEX MY FATHER


"There is the story of half-a-dozen boys who had severe fathers, accustomed to beat them within an inch of their lives. Another boy was with them who was well beloved by his parents, and known to do so. These young boys met together to hold a council of war about robbing an orchard. They were all anxious to get about it except the favoured youth, who did not enjoy the proposal. One of them cried out, 'You need not be afraid: if our fathers catch us at this work, we shall be half-killed, but your father won’t lay a hand upon you.' The little boy answered, 'And do you think because my father is kind to me, that therefore I will do wrong and grieve him? I will do nothing of the sort to my dear father. He is so good to me that I cannot vex him.'"
