Something to think about

I got this from a friend in an email. It's one of those "pass on to your friends" things. The message of it got me to thinking who else would do the same as the graduate student? Myself, yes, I would. it is:


An unemployed graduate woke up one morning and checked his pocket. All he had left was $10. He decided to use it to buy food and then wait for death as he was too proud to go begging. He was frustrated as he could find no job, and nobody was ready to help him.

He bought food and as he sat down to eat, an old man and two little children came along and asked him to help them with food as they had not eaten for almost a week.

looked at them. They were so lean that he could see their bones coming out. Their eyes had gone into the socket. With the last bit of compassion he had, he gave them the food. The old man and children prayed that God would bless and prosper him and then gave him a very old coin. The young graduate said to them 'you need the prayer more than I do'.

With no money, no job, no food, the young graduate went under the bridge to rest and wait for death. As he was about to sleep, he saw an old newspaper on the ground. He picked it up, and suddenly he saw an advertisement for people with old coins to come to a certain address.

He decided to go there with the old coin the old man gave him. On getting to the place, he gave the proprietor the coin. The proprietor screamed, brought out a big book and showed the young graduate a photograph. This same old coin was worth 3 million dollars. The young graduate was overjoyed as the proprietor gave him a bank draft for 3 million dollars within an hour. He collected the Bank Draft and went in search of the old man and little children.

By the time he got to where he left them eating, they had gone. He asked the owner of the canteen if he knew them. He said no but they left a note for you. He quickly opened the note thinking it would lead him to find them.

This is what the note said:'You gave us your all and we have rewarded you back with the coin,' signed God the Father,The Son and The Holy Ghost. 1 Kings 17:10-16; Matthew 11:28-30[B]

An act of kindness can go a long way folks. Remember that.

Very good story. Reminds me in high school we used to take trips to Seattle all the time. We would always go find a homeless person an take them to lunch just to be nice.

Many times I have given my all to help someone, whether it was food, money or
the coat off my back in the dead of winter.

Did I seek a reward for this ? -- NO

Did I get rewarded for it ? -- Yes

My reward was better than money, It was their health, happiness, well being,
and the smile on their faces. What a warm feeling.

Good blog Sweety. Greenie for you.
