There lived a very rich man with his wife in a town. The rich couple didn’t have any children and lived alone with all their fortune in a big castle.
The rich man didn’t spend a penny on the poor, making everyone in the town despise him so deeply.
There lived a generous butcher in the town who donated huge amounts of meat weekly to the people in need. People of the town loved him and respected him so dearly.
So many times, people pointed out the butcher’s bigheartedness to the rich man but he ignored them.
The grocery store also donated free commodities to deprived people.
Owners of shoe stores, clothing stores, school supply stores and many more didn’t charge if they felt that the customer was underprivileged.
There was a small medical center in town that treated deprived patients for free and gave them free medicine.
The rich man didn’t learn from all these generosities and continued living selfishly as he always did. People always anathematized him.
The rich man got sick for a few days and passed away beside his only member of the family, his wife.
No one came to his funeral except the butcher, grocery guy, and all the store owners and heads of the town. People were mad and said the rich guy didn’t deserve a funeral.
The wife was so sad and couldn’t live in the big castle alone, so she sold everything and moved to a big city.
From that day on, there was no more meat for the butcher to give for free, the poor no longer received free groceries, no patient got free treatment, no poor kid wore new shoes and clothes, for the rich man and woman were behind all of the generosities.
