Once upon a time, there lived a young boy named Jacob. He lived on a small farm in the countryside with his parents and his five sisters. He loved being outdoors and was always chasing after the chickens or playing in the fields.
One day, Jacob’s dad brought home a turnplow, which was used to turn the soil and make it easier to cultivate. Jacob was fascinated with the contraption, and he immediately asked his dad if he could try it out. His dad agreed and Jacob jumped on the turnplow with excitement.
Jacob drove the turnplow around the fields, plowing the soil with great enthusiasm. After a few hours, he had cleared the entire field, but he was so tired that he fell asleep on the turnplow.
The next morning, Jacob’s dad found him sleeping on the turnplow. He was so impressed with Jacob’s hard work that he decided to reward him with a brand new pair of shoes. Jacob was ecstatic and gladly put on the shoes, but his dad gave him a warning:
“These shoes are special–you must take good care of them. You must not use them to plow the fields, no matter how hard you work or how much you want to show off your new shoes.”
Jacob nodded in agreement, and kept the shoes safe in the house. He was so proud of his new shoes that he couldn’t wait to show them off to his friends.
One day, Jacob’s friends convinced him to take the shoes out to plow the fields. Jacob was hesitant at first, but eventually he agreed. When they got to the fields, Jacob started plowing but within a few minutes the shoes were completely ruined.
Jacob was devastated and his dad was so angry that he took away the turnplow and sent Jacob to his room. Jacob was so ashamed at what he had done and he vowed to never disobey his father’s orders again.
Moral of the story: Hard work and dedication will always pay off in the end, but it’s important to follow the rules and never disobey orders, no matter how much pressure you feel from your peers.
