    Loved this story!

    Very short story which was desirable because I have so little time to read. I like longer books, but sometimes get interrupted so often I lose track of the story or characters. This was short enough to read in one sitting, but was so good I had wished it was longer, or at least that the author had more stories like it I could order and read. In fact I emailed him to ask, but he didn't at this time. This story was in parable form, obviously from the title, and that is the sort of story I really enjoy. I think very deeply about things and parables always reach beneath the surface to find the hidden meanings. I found it to be inspiring and encouraging to anyone trying to walk their spiritual journey and struggling against discouragements and temptations to compromise their journey. It takes God out of the box and leads the believer to follow His leading instead of the consensus. Great read -- wish there was more where this came from!
