Dr. Muyhattai Tellalai

The guest speaker at the dinner stood, and began, “Hello people, my name is Muyhattai. I am excited to be with you this evening.

As I was saying, I am Muyhattai Tellalai. I am a doctor. If you want to know what’s truthfully wrong with you, don’t come and see me. I always listen to you for the diagnosis you want me to give, and then I tell you what you want me to say. You will then also have to tell me how you would like it treated so that I can prescribe the treatment you want.

You will be surprised to know that I am more popular than you would first think. It would seem that people are more interested in having their own say than they are about the truth. I have people come and see me, and then tell their friends, ‘I always knew what was wrong with me.’ Many of them have suffered severe complications: even debilitation, and some have died.

And, so I thought I would come and share with you this evening that it is always better to know the truth than to pander to your own ego. Let those who know give you the right prognosis, and follow their instructions, it will do you the world of good. That is why I always tell others it is better to get to know what God says than what you, or others think, or want him to say. Do whatever he says or you will find yourself being deceived by another Muyhattai Tellalai.

Thank you for listening. I pray that the things I have shared will make you appreciate God’s truth.”

Do I hear any applause from those invited to this feast?

Absolutely wonderful! It's humorous and fun and right on! People want to do what they want to do and have a way of twisting scripture to make it say what they want to hear! How I wish I had seen my own foolishness long, long ago! Take heed what you hear.

(smile) So true!
I was hoping for more...more description of the dinner, more details of people who don't listen to a doctor or God.
Good job...keep writing.

I was enjoying this so much that I was sad when I saw how short it was. I would have liked to have read more. I liked the point you were making with this. Good job!
