He told a servant to bring in a bundle of seven sticks together. He handed the bundle to his oldest son and said to him, “Son, now break the bundle”. The son tried with all his might, but he could not break the bundle. One by one, the other brothers tried. No one of them was strong enough. The father smiled, “Now, my sons, untie the bundle.
