PLAIN VIEW HERITAGE FARM, RURAL BRYANT, SD,

AND STADEMS SAGA PRESENTS:

A TALE FOR LILLE TUPIN AND TUTA,

"THE HUNTERS FROM THE BIG CITY LEARN A LESSON,"

Contributed by Darrell Ginther





The Moral to this story is that it is always better

to stand up for what is right,

even if it is hard to do.




Alfred and Bergit Stadem's little farm was good for growing corn. Alfred Stadem knew how to grow it too. Corn attracts pheasants, who love to pick up the stray kernels.

And after the big, plump pheasants came the hunters.

Far off in the big city of New York they heard about all the pheasants and how good the hunting was in the Dakotas.

A group of hunters came to Bryant, and they landed at Plain View Farm.

"May we hunt on your farm?" they asked Alfred when they showed up at the gate one day.

He said they could.

But when they found no pheasants, they were upset, and some began to say bad words.

Alfred spoke up. "There is to be no swearing on this land!" he told them. "We honor the Lord's name here, and God shall not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain!"

The hunters were surprised, but choosing not to be offended and angry, they respected what Alfred said, and before long, God blessed them, for they shot their limits of birds, making their trip a success.

Very happy, the men returned to New York City. But they didn't forget their experience on the little farm out in the Dakotas, where a godly farmer honored God's holy Name.

Knowing Alfred admired Abraham Lincoln, the president who defended the Union during the Civil War, and who also freed the slaves, the hunters sent him a book about Abraham Lincoln.

: Having met a godly man who feared and loved the Lord Jesus, they also came to know the Lord because of Alfred's standing up for righteousness.

That is what we are told happened.

But, children, would these men ever have come to know God and become Christians if he had let them say bad words?

Probably not. So we can see by this how very, very important it is to stand for what is right and true, even if people still make fun of you.
