Once a boy went to a shop with his mother. The shop keeper looked at the
small cute child and showed him a bottle with sweets and said 'Dear
Child..u can take the sweets...

But the child didnt take. The shop keeper was surprised.. such a small
child he is and why is he not taking the sweets from the bottle. Again he
said take the sweets....

Now the mother also heard that and said.. take the sweets dear.. Yet he
didnt take... The shopkeeper seeing the child not taking the sweets... he
himself took the sweets and gave to the child. The child was happy to get
two hands full of sweets.

While returning home the Mother asked the child... Why didnt you take the
sweets, when the shop keeper told you to take?..
Can you guess the response: Child replies... Mom! my hands are very small
and if i take the sweets i can only take few.. but now you see when uncle
gave with his big hands.... how many more sweets i got!

Moral: When we take we may get little but when God gives... HE gives us
more beyond our expectations. .. more than what we can hold..!!
