LET GOD DECIDES – STORY
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 didn’t 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 his mother also heard that and said.. ”beta take the sweets..”
Yet he didn’t take.
The shopkeeper saw that the child was not taking the sweets.. So he himself took the sweets and gave to the child..
The child was happy to get two hands full of sweets..
When they returned home, his Mother asked him:
”Why didn’t you take the sweets when shop keeper told you to take?”
The child said.. ”Mom, my hands are very small and if i take the sweets from my hands then i can only take a few.. but now you see when uncle gave with his big hands, how many more sweets i got!!”
When we take, we may get little but when God gives, He gives us more then our expectations…. more than what we can hold. So, We need not ask for something from God. He knows what, when and how to give something to us. This “LET GOD DECIDES – STORY” teaches this nicely.
There is a similar point from Srila Prabhupada’s Pastimes:
In the history it is unique. Crores of rupees’ property, and all over the world, buildings, temples. It is all Krsna’s. Nobody can harm them. It is not for me. There is no history. In one, ten years only, books like this, which are being received with so much adoration. They are simply Krsna. If I want to take credit personally, this is wrong, sir. So money does not come in that way unless Krsna gives.
Janmaisvarya-sruta-sribhih [SB 1.8.26].
If Krsna wants, He can give the whole world.
My father used to say, “God has got ten hands. If He wants to take away from you, with two hands how much you will protest? And when He wants to give you with ten hands, with two hands how much you will take it?”
