A Sheep in Court, Part 1

A man in India was accused a few months since for stealing a sheep.  He was brought before the judge, and the supposed owner of the sheep was also present.  Both of these men claimed the sheep, and had witnesses to prove their claim, so it was difficult for the judge to decide to which the sheep belonged.  Knowing however, the custom of shepherds, and the habits of the animal, he resorted to the following expedient.  He had the sheep brought into court, and sent one of the men into an adjoining room, while he told the other to call the sheep, and see if it would come to him; but the poor animal, not “knowing the voice of a stranger,” would not go to him . . . . . . .

About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."
