THE SWEETS: FORWARDED BY LILLY PETER, INDIA

SHORT STORY
THE SWEETS
BY
LILLY PETER

( We have another great short story from India about giving and taking by our Lilly Peter. It has a very good moral and we thank Lilly Peter for the story)New World

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..u can take the sweets...
But the child didn't take. 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 the mother also heard that and said..
Take the sweets dear.. Yet he didn't take...
The shopkeeper seeing the child not taking
the sweets... He himself took the sweets
and gave to the child. The child was happy
to get two hands full of 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: Child replies...
Mom! My hands are very small and if I take the
sweets 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 beyond our expectations. .. 
More than what we can.
