This story has been shared by one of my friends and I would like to share it with you. Such a touching tale.
Love your siblings;
Once there lived two brothers who lost their parents at an early age. They
worked together on their family farm. Some years later, the elder married
and had a family with 2 children, while the other was still single. They
worked hard together in the day and at the end of each day they shared
their produce equally.
One day while the single brother was working in the fields, he thought to
himself, “It’s not right that we share equally everything. I’m alone and my
needs are simple. My brother has a big family. He needs much more.”
With that in mind he took a sack full of grains and slowly went to his
brothers barn and places the sack quietly. He did so every night.
Meanwhile, the married brother thought to himself, “It’s not right that we
share everything equally. After all, I’m married and I have my wife and
children to look after me in years to come.
My brother has no family and no one can take care of his future. He really
should have a bigger share.” So each night he took a bag of grain and put
it into his brothers barn quietly. This went on and both men were puzzled
for years because their grain never dwindled.
Then one night, on the way to each others barn, the two brothers
coincidentally met and they found out what was happening all these years!
They dropped their bags, cried and embraced one another with tears of
They love each other, sincerely. What about us..?
Something to ponder.
