When telling a story we must resist the temptation to explain its message and lessons. With this in mind I offer this relevant story for your consideration. What does it say to you?
An Angelic Visit with a Twist
In an ancient and far away city there lived two successful and very competitive merchants who hated one another and were constantly trying to better the other.
One night a messenger from God visited one of the merchants and told him that he was instructed to grant him one wish and one wish only.
There was only one condition attached to the granting of the wish. Whatever the merchant wished for, the other merchant would receive double his wish.
The merchant pondered his decision while the angel waited patiently.
After a short time the merchant looked at the angel with a slight smile on his face and said, ” Make me blind in one eye.”
