Don't Look A Gift Horse In The Mouth

The guys get into trouble in this episode for wanting to help a boy keep his horse. Their problems are hilarious (whoever heard of feeding a horse Cream of Root Beer Soup, anyway?), but the fact that they try to help a youngster is both endearing and laudable. Many people sing "Jesus Loves the Little Children" without really realizing how true it is. God commands His people to look after children because they are precious to Him; widows and orphans are often mentioned throughout the Old Testament as groups that true believers will care for and evil people neglect. Isaiah states that "He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young" (Isaiah 40:11). Jesus took time out from His hectic schedule to bless the children who came to Him (Matthew 19:13-15), and He pronounced certain doom on anyone who "causes one of these little ones who believes in [Him] to sin" (Mark 9:42).
