Androcles and The Lion

Androcles was the slave of a Greek King. He was treated in a cruel way. He led a miserable life. While the master was away from home he ran away and hid himself in a forest.

As soon as he entered the dense forest, he heard the groaning of a lion. He saw that lion was limping towards him. His paw was swollen and there was a big thorn in it. The slave took pity on the lion and pulled out the thorn. The lion felt relieved. He felt grateful to the slave and licked his feet. Both of them became friends.

After some time, the king’s men came there in search of the slave. They found him and bound him hand and foot. Then they produced him before a judge. The judge ordered that the slave be thrown before a hungry lion. A lion was caught and brought there. He was the same lion from whose paw the slave had pulled out the thorn.

On the appointed day, the slave was thrown before the lion. The lion at once recognized his friend. Instead of pouncing upon him, he started licking his feet. All the people present there were amazed at the unusual spectacle. The slave told the whole story. The judge was pleased and set him free.

Moral: Kindness never goes unrewarded.
