The Parable of the Man in the Hole

There was a man walking along a country road and suddenly he fell into a dark, dusty hole. He immediately picked himself up and begin yelling for help. After an hour of yelling, he gave up. He sat in the dark waiting for someone to save him. After several days, someone heard him moaning, and helped him out of the hole.

Another man was walking along the same road and he too suddenly fell into the dark, dusty hole. He immediately picked himself up and begin yelling for help. When no one heard his cries, he got on his hands and knees and begin feeling around the dirty cave floor for something he could use to get himself out. To his surprise he found a flashlight. The light illuminated the hole, and he was able to find a small crawl space which led him back to the surface.
