A Precious Stone
A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream. The
next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to
share her food. The hungry traveler 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 wise 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 even 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's inside you that
others need….. A Precious Gift inside you.
