the value of a stone ( a story with morals )



for those of you that derive pleasure in spilling human blood,do you know how precious life is ? or the true what of human life? I pray that you learn some from this story depicting the true worth of a costly stone .

A little boy went to his old grandpa and
asked, “What’s the
value of life?”
The grandpa gave him one stone and said,
“Find out the
value of this stone, but don’t sell it.”
The boy took the stone to an Orange Seller
and asked him
what its cost would be. The Orange Seller saw
the shiny
stone and said, “You can take 12 oranges and
give me the
stone.” The boy apologized and said that the
grandpa has
asked him not to sell it.
He went ahead and found a vegetable seller.
“What could be
the value of this stone?” he asked the
vegetable seller. The
seller saw the shiny stone and said, “Take one
sack of
potatoes and give me the stone.” The boy
again apologized
and said he can’t sell it.
Further ahead, he went into a jewellery shop
and asked the
value of the stone. The jeweler saw the stone
under a lens
and said, “I’ll give you 50 million for this
stone.” When the
boy shook his head, the jeweler said, “Alright,
alright, take 2
gold necklace, but give me the stone.” The boy
explained
that he can’t sell the stone.
Further ahead, the boy saw a precious stones’
shop and
asked the seller the value of this stone. When
the precious
stones’ seller saw the big ruby, he lay down a
red cloth and
put the ruby on it. Then he walked in circles
around the ruby
and bent down and touched his head in front
of the ruby.
“From where did you bring this priceless ruby
from?” he
asked. “Even if I sell the whole world, and my
life, I won’t be
able to purchase this priceless stone.
Stunned and confused, the boy returned to the
grandpa and
told him what had happened. “Now tell me
what is the value
of life, grandpa?” Grandpa said, “The answers
you got from
the Orange Seller, the Vegetable Seller, the
Jeweller & the
Precious Stones’ Seller explain the value of our
life… You
may be a precious stone, even priceless, but
people will
value you based on their financial status, their
level of
information, their belief in you, their motive
behind
entertaining you, their ambition, and their risk
taking ability.
But don’t fear, you will surely find someone
who will
discern your true value.”
You are Unique and No one can Replace you!
