What Shall We Do With Jesus?
The Bat’s Indecision
“No man can serve two masters” (Matt. 6:24). Aesop speaks in one of his fables about a time when the beasts and fowls were engaged in war. The bat tried to belong to both parties. When the birds were victorious, he would wing around telling that he was a bird; when the beasts won a fight, he would walk around them assuring them that he was a beast. But soon his hypocrisy was discovered and he was rejected by both the beasts and the birds. He had to hide himself, and now only by night can he appear openly.
