Shopkeeper and boy

boyValue- Love

Sub value- Faith

Once, a poor little boy could not get even a morsel of food to appease his hunger, and stole a banana from a nearby fruit shop.
Being a devotee of the Lord  he dropped half the banana into the ‘hundi’ (donation box) and he ate the other half. The shop-keeper caught hold of the boy and accused him of the theft till the boy admitted his guilt. The shop-keeper did not have the heart to punish this innocent boy, but to teach him a lesson, he ordered him to walk around the temple a certain number of times. The shop-keeper was aghast when he saw the Lord  follow the little boy around the temple. That night the Lord came to the shopkeeper in a dream and explained, “Since I have also had a share in the stolen banana I am bound to share the punishment, too. So, I followed the boy around the temple.

Learning

Lord sees the simplicity and love of innocent people.
