The Expensive Gift – Inspirational Story !

bike1Once a poor boy was walking down the street and stopped when his eyes fell on a classy posh bike that was parked in front of a store. The boy stood there gazing at the bike. After a while the owner of the bike came out of the store. He saw the poor boy looking at his bike with amazement. He was a kind man so he took the boy for a ride on his bike.

The boy was very happy and said, “You have an amazing bike. It must be too expensive! How much does it cost?”

The man replied, “I don’t know the cost. My Father gifted it to me.”

The poor boy smiled and said, “That’s so nice of him. You have such a good father”.

The man told, “I know what you are thinking. You also wish to own such a bike. Don’t you?”

The boy said, “No! I want to be a Father like your father.”

The man was amazed at the boy’s wise thoughts which he never expected to come from him.

Dear FFJ Readers, what do we learn from this Story ?

    The hand that gives is better than the one that begs.So the boy’s remarks are meant to wish to become one who can give and benefit all those who cannot afford as whatever he is given by Allah is for self and others from his relatives and those close to him.

    This story is a copy of expensive car story
    Which was published earlier.In that story owner of car says the car is gift from his brother.In reply the boy says he wants to be a brother like his brother. Instead of copying stories,original true stories must be published to be effective morally

      Habib, it is very easy to comments on others work. Copy or not, I found this story inspiring and motivating. It teaches us a lesson.
      Instead of commenting on Sara’s work, why don’t you share some “Original true” stories.
      Sara, great work. Keep it up. I am looking forward to your mails daily.

    From such a story you can exactly now how to have a healthy mentality that knows how to make other people happy and your self happy, according to my understanding he wished to be a capable man to make his own kids happy in their life, and he can make him self happy.

    By this way we can build a society free from envy, constructive and free from crimes
