There were six people trapped in a dark, cold cave. They each had a stick of wood. The fire in the middle of the cave was starting to go out. The first woman refused to put her wood in the fire because there was someone she didn’t like in the circle. The next man held onto his stick of wood because there was someone who did not belong to his church in the circle. The third man was a poor man and he said, “Why should I give my stick to warm the rich?” The next man was rich and he said, “Why should I sacrifice my stick to warm the lazy poor?” The next man was greedy and he said, “I will save my stick of wood for tomorrow night to warm myself.” That night, they all died. However, they didn’t die from the cold in the cave, they died from the cold in their hearts.
