50 cents or $200, A tale of Kindness.

A Lady asks: "How much do you sell your eggs for?" The old vendor replies "50 cents an egg, madam". The Lady says, I'll take 6 eggs for $2.50 or I'm leaving. The old salesman replies buy them at the price you want, Madam. This is a good start for me because I haven't sold a single egg today and I need this to live. She bought her eggs at a bargain price and left with the feeling that she had won. She got into her fancy car and went to a fancy restaurant with her friend. She and her friend ordered what they wanted. They ate a little and left a lot of what they had asked for. So they paid the bill, which was $150. The ladies gave $200 and told the fancy restaurant owner to keep the change as a tip.

This story might seem quite normal to the owner of the fancy restaurant, but very unfair to the egg seller.

The questions it raises is:

I once read, that a father used to buy goods from poor people at high prices, even though he didn't need the things. Sometimes he paid extra for them. His son was amazed. One day the son asked him "Why are you doing this dad?" 

Then the father replied, "It's charity wrapped in dignity, son."

Prayer 🙏 

I need Your love. Today I’m opening myself up in a way like never before. Put Your love in every room in my heart. Fill my mind, life, body, hands, and feet with Your love. Oh mighty Creator, thank you for loving me. Thank you for creating me. Thank you for dying for me. Thank you for forgiving me. Thank you for giving the promise of your Spirit to be put inside me. I don’t understand it all, but I want to be filled with Your love, learn to love You, and love the people in my life. Forgive me for my immature love. I need to become a mature lover. I ask You to do what I could never do in me and my relationships alone. I must learn to offer grace. I want to learn to express faith and trust. I want to know to expect the best. I want to learn to endure the worst, even in sickness and health. I pray this prayer humbly, in your precious name. Amen.
