6 Familiar Bible Figures As the new supervisor for the Good Samaritan Nursing Home I have read the writing on the wall. Your former administrators were wolves in sheep’s clothing who embezzled funds. Your complaints, out of the mouth of babes, revealed the truth of their corrupt methods. We are not giving them a second chance. After all a leopard can’t change his spots. So, we have decided to replace them all instead of casting our pearls before swine.
