This story touched me and I thought of people who live their lives with unforgiveness and also they never unwrap the gift God has given them. It’s a tragic, but true story. Sometimes we think something of a person which is not true: like the son thought his dad “only” gives him the bible – he was so dissappointed in him that he didn’t even open the gift properly – the son just assumed something, what was not true. This story taught me not to assume things but to really look “into” the situation and in people’s heart. And also to be grateful for everything – especially the peopel I have in my life. This story makes me sad, thinking that the son never had the chance again to say thanks to his Dad.
A young man was getting ready to graduate from college.
For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer’s showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.
As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car.
Finally, on the morning of his graduation his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautifully wrapped gift box. Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible.
Angrily, he raised his voice at his father and said, “With all your money, you give me a Bible?” and stormed out of the house, leaving the holy book.
Many years passed…
