Once upon a time, There was a very poor old man who passed life so hard. His son and daughter were sick, and the poverty didn’t allow him to take them to a doctor.
He didn’t even have money for a portion of proper food for his children. They had ripped clothes and not a very warm place to sleep. His job was to walk around the bazaar and beg for money to buy a piece of bread and take it home to feed them.
Every night he came home tired with a broken heart. He was so ashamed and couldn’t face his children. One of the days, no one gave him even a penny. He walked from alleys to bazaars, but still no luck for a piece of bread.
He couldn’t go home empty-handed; he was tired and disgraceful. He decided to go to the miller and beg for some flour.
The miller didn’t have flour but gave the old man a few cups of wheat. The old man tightened the wheat in a cloth and hanged it to his waist.
Then started talking to God: “My dear God, you truly can open any knot in the life. My children are sick and they need medicine and food. Please help me. I will sell this wheat and buy medicine and cook soup for them.
Please open this knot in my life and help me find a way to fix this poverty.” He continued praying and begging God. All of a sudden, he noticed that the knot of the cloth of wheat had opened and all the wheat is on the dirt. He got angry and screamed to the sky: “You are the God, the smartest of all. When I begged you to open the knot, I meant the knot of my problems, not the knot of the wheat’s cloth.
Now I have nothing for my children.” He continued blasphemy and being ungrateful to God while bending to take all the wheat off the ground. As soon as he bent for the wheat, he saw a small bag. He opened the bag and saw many golden coins.
He felt so bad of being so judgemental and looked at the sky and said: “You are the smartest of all, you wanted my wheat to fell on the ground so I would bend and see the sack of the gold coins. You hear our prayers; you see our pains; we have no patients and never grateful. I begged people and got a piece of bread, but I begged you and you gave me a solution.”
