Father Teaches Son True Values Of Life

There was a boy whose family was quite affluent. One day, his father took him on a trip to the country, hoping to show him how poor people live. So they came at a farm owned by a very impoverished family, as he saw it. They stayed there for several days. When they returned, the father asked his son how he liked the trip. “Oh, it was great, dad,” the youngster responded.

“Did you notice, how poor people Live?” . “Yes, I did,” replied the bay. The father urged his son to elaborate on his impressions from their vacation. “Well, they have four dogs, whereas we just have one. Our garden features a pool, whereas theirs is an endless river.

We have expensive lights, but they have stars over their heads at night. We have the patio; they have the entire horizon. We just have a small plot of land, but they have vast fields. We buy food; they cultivate it. We have a high fence to safeguard our land, but they don’t need it because their pals keep them safe.”

The father was stunned; he couldn’t speak. Then the boy added: “Thank you, Dad, for letting me see how poor we are.”
