Where there are no oxen, the manger is empty, but from the strength of an ox come abundant harvests.

– Proverbs 14:4 (NIV)

If this is true then why do we shrink back from progress simply because our efforts might mess things up? The dirty manger is also the place of abundant harvest—there is no way around it.
