Remember the miller’s donkey.
The miller, son and donkey went to the market. The miller rode the donkey all the way and people exclaimed, “Cruel man, riding himself and making his son walk.”
So he got down and his son rode; the people said, “What a lazy son for riding while poor old father walks.”
Then both father and son rode, and people said, “Cruelty to animals, poor donkey.”
So they got down and carried the donkey on a pole, but folks said, “Here are two donkey slang’s carrying another donkey slang”
Then all three walked and people said, “What fools to have a donkey and not ride it.”
So lets go ahead with our work for God and not care what folks think or say.
