It represented substance and covering in abundance
Today, we are discussing an interesting tale.
When you think about all the wonderful gifts a person(s) may desire to give others like family, friends, and even strangers at times; there would still be the need for patience. An appreciation for such a word is learned by a children’s story and a warning against greed.
This story has been told two or three different ways many times.
You have most likely heard it by now.
It’s called “The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs” This bed time story told to children reference a couple of scenarios when being told by the mother or father with all the embellishments!
A) A man and a woman who happened to be poor.
B) One man who is also of little means and yet receives this gift or purchase of a Goose.
Either way the story is told, it sure takes on a life all its own when the parents tell it with sound effects. You did not know mom and dad could even make character voices like that— those were the good ole days.
Where were we?
The man/family in poverty received a goose that laid overnight one golden egg each day. Overtime, the man/family paid off debts and became rich.
However, they started reasoning “We do not want to wait overnight just for one egg.” Yes, twenty-four hours became too long of a wait for them. Therefore, they reasoned, if they cut the goose open, in effect killing the goose, there would be plenty of eggs that would come out.
I imagined they were thinking an unlimited supply/source. At least when I was a child and heard the story.
When the husband and wife did the terrible deed, they found absolutely nothing, and now they had lost their means of riches; as well the ability to enjoy life in abundance.
What’s the moral of the story?
In a nutshell, it is not to be greedy trying to get everything; because then you will end up with nothing.
“Greed causes people to lose their humanity.” – The Sage
Perceptive Readers let me be clear, the story is not looking down on the rich or wealth.
Christ Followers are Rich in Spirit also Wealth
Perceptive readers you are able to enjoy recreations and vacations. There is nothing wrong with savoring the fruits of your labor.
The moral of the story points out how all must always keep appreciation for what we have in our lives; including our means of making a wage and living (Our handmill).
We strive to be ethically sound in all business dealings.
Yes, whatever our quality of life entails; let us always show an appreciation and patience when needed to maintain our gratitude.
