Jungo The Woodpecker

Posted by GFNSProductions on May 11, 2013 at 11:40 PM

There once was a woodpecker named Jungo. He was an incessant woodpecker and he would always peck the trees of the forest at odd hours of the day. Every animal in the jungle would wake up at the sound of the pecking to the point that they all wished him gone.

 

One day while at work, doing what woodpeckers do, a hunter came into the forest. He was seeking to catch the animals of the forest unaware, but to his dismay, all of them were up. He said to himself, “This is a rather strange thing! Every forest that I go to, I find all the animals asleep at this time except for this one.” That is when the animals responded, “We would be asleep if it were not for this woodpecker. We hate him so much.” Delightfully, the hunter said, “I see! Well, I can be of some assistance then. I can solve this problem for you once and for all.” All the animals said, “Really? What do you want us to do?” The hunter said, “ Just jump into this cage and I will take you to another place without such a woodpecker.” The animals were ecstatic and all rushed in one by one, and they were never seen again.

 

Later on, Jungo came out looking for his fellow forest dwellers. Unfortunately, he could not find a single one. He became very lonely, and sad, so he decided to seek another forest to live in. He searched far and wide, but all the neighboring forests were empty as well. He became very discouraged, until one day he came upon this tiny little creek hidden in the middle of the woods. As he sat down next to the creek, little did he know that he was being watched. He decided to drink a little water, and get to work doing what woodpeckers do. So he found a nice big tree, and started pecking at it. Peck Peck Peck... Peck Peck Peck....

 

Jungo didn't realize it, but all of the little animals in the creek started to surround him while he was pecking the tree. When he was done, he looked up, and to his surprise he had an entire company of new forest friends to play with. They asked him, “What are you doing?” He said, “Just doing what woodpeckers do.” They replied, “We were afraid to come out before because we didn't know what you were. We thought you might be 'the hunter.' We've heard stories about him in these woods and as you can see, we are the last animals left.” Jungo replied, “No, I'm not 'the hunter.' I'm just looking for some friends to play with. All of my neighbors disappeared and I don't know where they went.” With his eyes to the ground, a tear drop rolled down Jungo's face. “Don't cry” the little animals said. “You can stay here with us, and If you ever see 'the hunter', then just start pecking and we will all be on alert.” Jungo was happy to find a home, and friends that appreciated him for just being himself.


The Moral of the story of this: "A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hood and among his own family." (Matthew 13:57, Mark 6:4, Luke 4:24)
