Some people say, white lie. It does not hurt. Someone tells it to avoid hurting another person. I don't believe in that. A lie is a lie. Whether white or colored. God does not like dishonest or untruthful ones. In fact, lying is a bad habit. It shows insufficiency or decrease of the individuality. Cowardice or being afraid of something are one of its major merits.
The previous production leads to the story of that shepherd who used to lie to his village people.
Once upon a time a shepherd took his sheep to a pasture to eat the grass. While the sheep were eating the grass he felt bored. He said to himself, (why don't I have some fun. Let me play with those imbeciles). He shouted to the people of the village,
(help! Help! The wolf is eating the sheep, the wolf is eating them).
hearing his shouts, the villagers ran to him quickly carrying their weapons to fight the wolf. To their surprise, they found nothing. The sheep ate the grass while the shepherd was laughing. They went back to the village. The next day, he repeated the same action.
(Help! Help! The wolf is eating the sheep) The villagers came to his rescue but this time he was smiling. No wolf or any other wild animal was there. This time, the villagers knew that, the boy was only lying and fooling them.
On the third day, three real wolves appeared from the side of the mountains and the shepherd could not see them. Then, they approached the sheep and started to eat them one by one. Suddenly, the shepherd saw this and started to shout and ran towards the village,
( Help! Help! The wolf is eating the sheep. I 'm not lying, believe me). The villagers heard him but they thought that he was lying. No one believed him. The wolves ate the sheep and then ran after the shepherd and grabbed him by his foot and cut the rest of his body till he was gone.
