Javanese children here in Asia Pacific grow up hearing bedtime stories about the infamous Si Kancil, or mouse deer. I am not exactly sure what a mouse deer is, but I have heard many of his stories since living in this country. Today I asked my language helper what values her parents were teaching her through these stories. These were her answers : “Don’t be proud” “Don’t use your cleverness to do wrong” and to those that are deceived by “Si Kancil”…”Don’t be fools that are so easily deceived!” Just a few lessons from bedtime stories in Asia Pacific, but I was struck with the parallels to God’s Word about how easy our minds can believe the clever lies of Satan instead of the truth of God’s Word. Keep praying for open minds to Truth!
