There lived a poor man. He was too old to work, and his living depended on other people’s support.
One day he heard a very rich man in his town is donating food. He walked a long way to get to the rich man’s house and knocked on the door.
The rich guy opened the door angrily and looked at the poor man’s ripped clothes and thick dirty hair. He felt disgusted and asked: “What do you want, old man? I think you lost your way!”
The poor man replied kindly: “I heard you are donating food to poor people, that’s why I came to your door.”
The rich man said: “Whoever passed the news didn’t do a good job. My dog was sick, and the vet said she might go blind. I vowed to God if my dog wouldn’t go blind, I will feed a truly blind person. But unfortunately, I can’t help you because you are not blind.”
The poor man felt so bad, regretted his visit, and said: “Actually, the truly blind person is me. I was too blind to see a selfish, spoiled person like you would ever help others unless there is a benefit in it for you.
You prayed to God for the cure of your dog, and in return, you put specific obligations. People like you take advantage of everything. You make deals even with God.”
