A POUND OF BUTTER
There was a farmer who sold a
pound of butter to the baker.
One day the baker decided to
weigh the butter to see if he
was getting a pound and he
found that he was not. This
angered him and he took the
farmer to court. The judge
asked the farmer if he was
using any measure. The farmer
replied, my Honor, I am
primitive. I don't have a proper
measure, but I do have a scale."
The judge asked, "Then how do
you weigh the butter?" The
farmer replied "Your Honor, long
before the baker started buying
butter from me, I have been
buying a pound loaf of bread
from him. Every day when the
baker brings the bread, I put it
on the scale and give him the
same weight in butter. If anyone
is to be blamed, it is the baker."
MORAL : We get back in life what
we give to others. Whenever
you take an action, ask yourself
this question: Am I giving fair
value for the wages or money I
hope to make? Honesty and
dishonesty become a habit.
Some people practice
dishonesty and can lie with a
straight face. Others lie so much
that they don't even know what
the truth is anymore. But who
are they deceiving? THEMSELVES.
