The Foolish Farmer
One day Jesus told a story. This is what He said:
Once upon a time there was a farmer. He had a big garden. Lots of wheat plants grew in his garden.
He had many helpers. They all worked for him.
He had a nice house. He had many pennies.
Now, God gave him his garden. But the farmer didn't think about that.
God gave him his helpers. But the farmer didn't think about that.
