Be Good To All
Long ago, there lived a little boy named Sammy. He was a good boy. He was good at his studies, obedient to his parents, more intelligent than many other boys in his class and was kind to everyone. Grown ups as well as those junior to Sammy loved him very much. However that aroused jealousy in many other boys who longed to be loved as Sammy.
Now there was another boy named Timmy who studied in the same class as Sammy. Unlike Sammy, he was not good at studies and always misbehaved with his parents, bullied his classmates and even ill – treated Sammy. He always tried to put Sammy down and belittled him before other kids in class. No matter what he did, Sammy grades kept getting better and better. Whether in studies or in sports or from his classmates, Sammy kept getting accolades from everywhere.
On his (Sammy’s) eighth birthday, Sammy got a nice pen as a gift from his parents. He brought it to school. He could not use it to take notes in class as the pen was very beautiful and could not help one to write faster. When Timmy saw it, he was very jealous of Sammy. He asked Sammy,
“Hey, where did you get that? Did you buy it?”
“My parents gave it as a birthday gift to me.” Replied Sammy.
Timmy roused with anger and jealousy became restless. The bad boy that he was, he rarely got any present from his parents. He decided to steal Sammy’s pen. Timmy opened his (Sammy’s) bag and took out his pen. Then he hid it inside his bag and went out to have his snacks.
When Sammy came back to class he could not find his pen, he informed his class teacher about this. She told the class monitor to search for the pen in everyone’s bag soon the pen was found inside Timmy’s bag. The furious teacher asked the errant boy,
“Now Timmy what do you have to say about it?”
Timmy was in tears. He had nothing to say.
Seeing Timmy in tears Sammy took pity on him and told his teacher not to take any action on him now that the pen was found.
This opened Timmy’s eyes. He could see what a good boy Sammy was. He became friends with Sammy and soon Sammy changed Timmy as good as he was. Now (Sammy) was proud of his new friend.
Despite being hurt by Timmy, Sammy gave him back only love in return. Who knows? One day, our good behavior may just change someone for the better. Are we ready to do our best, better than yesterday? Let us not be quitters not forgetting that whatever we sow, we will reap.
Moral: Do not harm someone even if he harms you. “Be good to all”.
