MATERIALISTIC ATTITUDE – STORY

MATERIALISTIC ATTITUDE – STORY

Once a hungry wolf was in search of his prey.

He spotted a goat.

He thought, “Oh! It will be wonderful to have this fat goat as my meal.”

The goat seeing the wolf started to run.

Before the poor goat can escape, the wolf pounced and instantly killed him.

He started to enjoy the flesh of the goat.

While relishing the flesh of the goat, suddenly he felt pain in his throat.

He thought “It is a piece of bone of the goat. It is neither coming out nor going in. I am helpless. It is hurting me. It I try to eat it pain me even more.”

Then he spotted a crane. He thought, “This crane has a long beak. Let me take his help to remove the bone that is stuck in my throat. I can than enjoy the goat’s flesh.”

The wolf approached crane and said, “My dear crane do not worry. I will not harm you. I need your help. If you help me, than I will gift you something very useful”.

The crane said “What help do you want from me?”

The wolf replied, “There is a painful bone stuck in my throat. Can you please remove it with your long beak.”

The crane said “I will remove the bone piece but you will have to reward me nicely.”

The wolf opened his mouth wide.

The crane immediately pulled out the bone piece.

Swiftly the wolf started to walk away. The crane told the wolf “Hey! Where is my gift? You are not even thanking me for relieving you of the painful bone.”

The wolf replied, “Thank me that I let you go alive. If you want the reward then you will have to enter my stomach.”

Crane replied, “Forget the gift. I better save my life.”

Moral:

Expect no reward for serving the wicked. A materialistic is attached to his sense enjoyment. In order to enjoy, he will make friend with everyone.

Once his work is done he will not keep his word. He will threaten and even kill the person who has helped him if that satisfied his senses. Never put faith on the materialist who is always attached to his senses.
