Grandson: I’m sooo tired!

Grandfather: Here, you can sit on the donkey.

(The grandson sits on the donkey. The people from the village come out, notice them)

NARRATOR: The people from the village see them.

Group #1(4-5 people): OH POOR GRANDFATHER!!!

Group #2(4-5 people): LOOK AT HOW HIS GRANDSON MAKES HIM WALK!

Person #1: AND HE HAS VERY BAD KNEES!

(Grandfather and grandson look at each other)

Grandfather: So that the people don’t think badly of us, I will ride the donkey now.

Grandson: Okay Grandpa.

(The Grandfather sits on the donkey and they continue to walk)

Group #1(4-5 people): OH POOR LITTLE BOY!!!

Group #2(4-5 people): LOOK AT HOW HIS GRANDFATHER MAKES HIM WALK!

Person #2: AND HE HAS VERY BAD KNEES!

NARRATOR: The grandfather and the grandson, seeing the reaction of the people, decide to BOTH sit on the donkey. The people of the village, when they saw them, began to say:

Group #1: OH THE POOR DONKEY!!!

Group #2: HE HAS SO MUCH WEIGHT ON HIS BACK!

Person #3: AND HE HAS VERY BAD KNEES!

NARRATOR: Seeing the reaction of the people, the grandfather and grandson decide to CARRY the donkey. When the village people see them, they start to laugh.

All village people: (laughter, pointing)

Group #1: LOOK AT THOSE SILLY PEOPLE!

Group #2: THEY’RE CARRYING THE DONKEY!

Person #4: AND THEY HAVE VERY BAD KNEES! Ha, ha, ha…

(Grandfather and grandson look at each, exasperated… and exit stage. Make this very dramatic.)

NARRATOR: The moral of the story is: Don’t judge a book by its cover. Don’t judge a glass by what it contains. Don’t judge a tree by its leaves. Basically, DON’T JUDGE. How do you know what the person has inside?

Moral #2: Don’t do things just so others will think well of you. They'll always find something to talk about. Do them only for the glory of God!
