Optional Story: While setting up the Vision of the Tree of Life on a wall or board you can have someone read the following story.
The Boy Who Cried Wolf
There is an old story about a boy who took sheep to the mountain to tend them. "If you have any trouble with wolves, just blow the horn and yell, 'Wolf!'" said the townspeople. "We will come and help you." The boy was bored one day and blew the horn. The townspeople came running to help, and the boy thought it was a good joke. Two other times he needlessly called, "Wolf!" and blew the horn. Each time, the people ran to help.
Then came the day when a wolf really appeared and attacked the sheep. The boy blew the horn and called and called, but the townspeople thought that he was lying again. Nobody went to help, and many sheep were killed. Lying hurts you not only because of the direct harm it may cause you and others, but also because people will hesitate to trust you again. So always tell the truth.
