The Man on the Fence – A Parable (Author Unknown)

There was a large group of people gathered. On one side of the group stood a man, Jesus. On the other side stood another, Satan. Separating them was a fence running through the group.

Both Jesus and Satan began calling to people in the group.

One by one, each having made up his or her own mind, went to either Jesus or Satan. This kept going for a time.

Soon enough, Jesus had gathered around him, a group of people from the larger crowd, as did Satan.

One man joined neither group. He climbed the fence that was there and sat on it.

Jesus and his people left and disappeared, and so too did Satan and his people.

The man on the fence sat alone.

As this man sat, Satan came back, looking for something which he appeared to have lost. The man said, “Have you lost something?” Satan looked straight at him and replied, “No, come with me.”

The man said, “But I sat on the fence. I chose neither you nor him.” Satan said, “That’s okay; I own the fence.”

Matthew 12:30 (NIV) Jesus said, “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.”

In His love,
