Once a boy went to a shop with his mother. The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed him a bottle with sweets and said ’Dear Child, You can take the sweets.’ but the child didn’t took them. The shop keeper was surprised. Such a small child he is and why is he not taking the sweets from the bottle. Again he said take the sweets. Now his mother also heard that and said. ??You can take the sweets son’’ yet he didn’t took any of the sweets.
The shopkeeper saw that the child was not taking the sweets. So he himself took the sweets and gave them to the child. The child was happy to get two hands full of sweets. When they returned home, his mother asked him. "Why didn’t you took the sweets when shop keeper told you to take"
The child said ’’Mom, my hands are very small and if I take the sweets from my hands then I can only take 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 gives us more then our expectations.... More than what we can hold.
