Once a boy went to a shop with his mother..
The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed him a jar full of sweets and said “Dear Child, You can take some sweets”.
But the child didn’t take.
The shop keeper was surprised.
Such a small child but why is he not taking the sweets from the jar ?
Again he said take the sweets. Now the mother also heard this and said “Take the sweets dear”.
Yet he didn’t take it.
The shopkeeper, seeing the child not taking the sweets, himself took the sweets and gave them to the child. The child was ecstatic to have been given so many delicious sweets!
While returning home the Mother asked the child “why didn’t you take the sweets, when the shop keeper told you to take ?”
Can you guess the response..?
The child replied:
“Mom! My hands are very small and if I take the sweets I can only take a few..
But now you see when uncle gave with his big hands..
How many more sweets I got!”
Moral: When we take we may get little. But when God gives, he provides beyond our expectations.. more than what we can hold.
