A man fell into a hole and couldn’t get out. A doctor walked by and the man yelled up, “Can you help me? I can’t get out!”
The doctor wrote a prescription, threw it down into the hole, and walked away.
A priest walked by, and the man yelled up, “Help! I’ve fallen into a hole, and can’t get out.
The priest wrote a prayer on a piece of paper, threw it down to the man, and walked on.
Soon the man’s friend walked by. “Hey, friend! I’ve fallen into this hole and can’t get out. Can you help me?”
The friend said, “Sure” and jumped into the hole with his friend.
The man said, “Are you crazy? Now we’re both stuck in this hole!”
But his friend said, “No, see, I’ve been in this hole before, and I know how to get out.”
That’s the power of learning from people who have been there before.
