The Wise Woman.
An old wise woman who was travelling in the montain found a precious stone in a stream.The next day she met another traveller who was hungry and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food.The hungry traveller saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him.She did so without hesitation.
The traveller left rejoicing in his good fortune.He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime.But a few days later,he came back to return the stone to the woman."I've been thinking", he said "I know how valuable this stone is but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something more precious.Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me this stone".
Sometimes it's not the wealth you have but what inside you (heart) is what others need i.e, Love,Kindness,Mercy,Generosity etc.
