ON LOVE PART 4

ILLUSTRATION ON LOVE, PART IV

 

I want to use an earthly event to illustrate the heavenly situation to you. In a certain town, there was a king who had a son, a prince.  It was the custom of the people that their prince or princess should not fail in love with anybody who is not a princess or prince.  This was the tradition which was respected and kept by all successive royal families.  A breach of that tradition was to attract capital punishment. In the reign of this king in question, the prince broke this tradition and chose the son of one wretched farmer as his friend.  They loved each other dearly to such an extent that they wore the same style of dress made of the same material and color. On noticing this, the people took offence and reported it to the king. The king in turn asked the people what they expected him to do. The people summoned the elders of the community and demanded that the law be enforced so as to restore sanity in the land and deter others from breaking any other. They resolved that in the event of contravention of the law, those involved should be punished accordingly by death sentence.

 

Nevertheless, the prince was not being tried even if he went contrary to the law, but the son of the poor man could be killed once he was involved.  After the whole community had resolved to deal with the offenders, the two friends still went ahead.

Three days after, they were caught. The son of the farmer was arrested and detained in prison custody pending when he would be executed. Throughout the period of his detention, the prince kept visiting him and made sure that he was well fed. A day before the boy was to be killed; the prince went there and exchanged his royal garment with the prison attire which the boy had on.  With this royal garment, he helped the boy escape from the prison. While the prince himself put on the prisoner’s attire and took the place of his friend.

 

The hour came when the prisoner was to be killed. As was the custom, before a condemned person was finally executed, he was to disclose his identity to the people, the prison itself was built in such a way that a prisoner was completely hidden from the people. The face of the prisoner was covered but when the executioners were ready to kill the prisoner, they demanded that he should disclose his identity. On this particular occasion, the boy said: “I am the prince.”  The people were surprised to discover that he was the prince of the land. After the hood had been removed from his face, behold it was the king’s son indeed. Being the prince, he was not killed. He was rather escorted to the palace. From that day, the obnoxious law ceased to operate.
