The words of wise men are like goads, and masters of these collections are like well-driven nails; they are given by one Shepherd. But beyond this, my son, be warned: the writing of many books is endless, and excessive devotion to books is wearying to the body. The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. -King Solomon
A couple had three sons, two of which were physically and mentally handicapped and died within nine days of each other at the ages of 6 and 3 years old. After the death of the first, the father realizes that he is not ready to meet death and gets saved, and after the death of the second, the mother is restored to the Lord. They see that taking "the little lambs" was the only way God could get "the sheep" to follow him.
