Aim High

There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat.
He had an old rifle and three bullets. So, he decided that he would go
out hunting and kill some wild game for dinner.

As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit. He shot at the rabbit and
missed it. The rabbit ran away. Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot
at the squirrel and missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in
a cottonwood tree. As he went further, he saw a large wild Tom turkey in
the tree, but he had only one bullet remaining.

A voice spoke to him and said, Pray first, aim high and stay focused.

However, at the same time, he saw a deer which was a better kill. He brought
the gun down and aimed at the deer. But, then he saw a rattlesnake between
his legs about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to
shoot the rattlesnake. Still, the voice said again to him, I said ‘Pray, Aim high and Stay focused?

So, the man decided to listen to God‘s voice. He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree and shot the wild turkey. The bullet bounced off the turkey and killed the deer. The handle fell off the gun and hit the snake in the head and killed it.
And when the gun had gone off, it knocked him into a pond.

When he stood up to look around, he had fish in all his pockets, a dead
deer and a turkey to eat for his family. The snake (Satan) was dead simply because the man listened to God.
