It's more blessed to give than to receive


there's some story. here is it....

A young man, a student in one of the universities, was one day taking a walk with his Professor. The professor was commonly called the "student's friend", from his kindness to those who waited on his instructions. As they went along, they saw lying in the path a pair of old shoes. They belonged to a poor man who was employed in a field close by, and who had nearly finished his day's work. The student turned to the professor, saying "Let's play a trick on this man, we will hide his shoes and hide behind those bushes there and see what he does when he cannot find them." ..... "my young friend" answered professor, "we should never amuse ourselves at the expense of the poo. But you are rich, i will show you a better way to give yourself a much greater pleasure by means of this poor man. Put a coin in each shoes and then we'll hide and watch how this affects him"

The studenr did so and they both hide nearby. the poor man soon finished his work and came out of the field to where he had left his coat and shoes. He slipped his foot into one of his shoes, but feeling something hard, he stopped down to feel what it was, and found the coin. Astonished and full of wonder he gazed upon the coin, turned it around, and looked at it again and again. Now, he put the money into his pocket, and proceeded to put on the other shoe but his surprise was doubled on finding the other coin. His feeling overcome him, he fell upon his knees, looked up to the heavens and uttered aloud a fervent thanksgiving. He spoke to his wife who was sick and helpless and his children without bread, whom from some unknown hand. have been saved from perishing.

The student stood there deeply affected, and his eyes filled with tears. "now" said the proffesor, are you not much better pleased than if you had played your intended trick?" the youth replied "you have taught me a lesson which i will never forget. I feel now the truth of thewe words, which i never understood before ' It's more blessed to give than to receive ' "
