PREPARING FOR A NEW VOCATION
A man became disenchanted with the city life he was living. He decided to move to the country and start a chicken farm. He bought a farmhouse with some land around it and, after he had moved in, he bought 200 baby chicks. But they all quickly died. He bought 200 more baby chicks but, again, they all died a short time later. Puzzled and distressed, the man wrote to the County Agricultural Agent and described everything that had happened. He concluded his letter, ” I want very much to be a successful chicken farmer. Therefore, can you tell me: Have I been planting the chicks too close together or too deep?” Whereupon the County Agent wrote back and said, “I can’t answer your question until you send me a soil sample.” Sunday Sermons Treasury of Illustration by James Colaianni, Vol. 1, pp. 43,44.
