TRUE STORY.

*Many years ago, on a Christmas Day, a very Rich Man who had no wife, no children, no other family members, decided to invite all the employees of his Mansion to dinner.*

*He called the staff and asked them to sit at the table.*
*In front of everyone there was a BIBLE and a small sum of MONEY.*

*After everyone was installed, the Rich Man asked:*

*”What would you prefer to receive as a gift: this BIBLE or this MONEY?*

*Do not be shy, you can choose what you want. “*

*THE GUARDIAN WAS THE FIRST TO REACT:*

*”Sir, I would love to receive the Bible, but since I have not learned to read, the money will be more useful to me.”*

*THE GARDENER WAS THE SECOND TO SPEAK:*

*”Sir, my wife is very sick and that’s why I need more money, otherwise I would choose the Bible for sure!”*

*THE THIRD WAS THE COOK:*

*”Sir, I like reading to tell the truth, it’s one of the things I like to do, but I work so hard that I never find time to flip through a magazine, let alone the Bible. I will take the money. “*

*IN THE END, IT WAS THE turn OF THE BOY WHO TAKES CARE OF THE ANIMALS OF THE MANSION.*

*And as the Rich Gentleman of the villa knew that the boy’s family was very poor, he stepped forward and said:*

*”Surely you too want the money, do you not?” So that you can buy food to have a good dinner at home and buy new shoes? “*

BUT THE BOY,
as for him, surprised everybody with his answer:

*”It would not hurt to buy a turkey and other tasty food to share with my Parents and Siblings. I also need a pair of new shoes because mine are very old. Even so, I will choose the Bible because I have always wanted one.My mother taught me that the Word of God is worth more than gold and that it is more tasty than a honeycomb.”*

*After receiving the Bible, the boy immediately puffed it out and found TWO ENVELOPES inside.*

*In the first, there was a CHEQUE that was 10 TIMES higher than the money on the table.*
*In the second, there was a DOCUMENT (Will) that made (whoever would choose the Bible), the heir to the wealth of the Rich Man!*
*Faced with the Boy’s emotion and the astonishment of the other servants, the Rich Gentleman opened one of the Bibles and read aloud so that everyone could hear:*

*Psalms 19:7-10:*

*The law of the LORD is perfect, it restores the soul;*

*The testimony of the Lord is true, he makes wise the ignorant.*

*The ordinances of the LORD are righteous, they rejoice the heart;*

*The commandments of the Lord are pure, they light up the eyes.*

*The fear of the Lord is pure, it subsists forever;*

*The judgments of the Lord are true, they are all just.*

*They are more precious than gold, than a lot of fine gold; They are sweeter than honey, than the one that pours rays.*

*May God give us Wisdom and help us always make the Right Choice.*

*So what do you Choose? To share this story or Ignore it? Do FORWARD.
