A really dreadful shaggy donkey tale for you from Bibledonkeys.com
A man bought a donkey from a preacher. The preacher told the man that this donkey had been trained by the previous owner, a preacher. The only way to make the donkey go was to say, “Hallelujah!”
The only way to make the donkey stop was to say, “Amen!”
The man was pleased with his purchase and immediately got on the animal to try out the preacher’s instructions. “Hallelujah!” shouted the man. The donkey began to trot.
“Amen!” shouted the man. The donkey stopped immediately.
“This is great!” said the man. With a “Hallelujah,” he rode off, feeling pleased with his purchase.
The man traveled for a long time through some mountains. Soon, he was heading toward a cliff. He had travelled for so long that he had forgotten the commands. He could not remember the word to make the donkey stop.
“Stop,” said the man.
“Halt!” he cried. The donkey kept going.
“Oh, no… Bible!….Church!…Please Stop!!” shouted the man. The donkey began to trot faster. He was getting closer and
closer to the cliff edge. Finally, in desperation, the man said a prayer: “Please, dear Lord. Please make this donkey stop before I go off the end of this mountain, AMEN.”
The donkey came to an abrupt stop just one step from the edge of the cliff.
“HALLELUJAH!” shouted the man.
