“That snake bit you.  Why are you still trying to save it?”

A man saw a snake being burned to death and decided to take it out of the fire. When he did, the snake bit him causing excruciating pain. The man dropped the snake, and the reptile fell right back into the fire.
So, the man grabbed a metal pole took the snake out of the fire and saved its life.

Someone who was watching approached the man and said:
“That snake bit you. Why are you still trying to save it?”

The man replied:
“The nature of the snake is to bite, but that’s not gonna change my nature, which is to help.”

Do not change your nature simply because someone harms you. Do not lose your good heart, only learn to take precautions.
