“156th story”

First published: Aug.27.2020


Karim was in 4th grade when his school announced a field trip. The school asked all the students to provide a small amount of money for the field trip and get their parents to sign the paper.


Karim’s family was so poor, and even that tiny amount was impossible for them to provide. Karim went back to school sad and handed the signed paper without money to his teacher. All the students were very excited and gave their papers and money to the teacher.


The class started, and the teacher looked at Karim and randomly asked a question from the last year’s book. Karim replied correctly, and the teacher made everyone clap for Karim and said: “This intelligence deserves an award.”


Then he gave an envelope to Karim and said: “Don’t open it now because we have to start our class.”

When Karim opened the envelope later in recess, he saw the exact amount of money for the school’s field trip. He became thrilled and was able to go on the field trip.


Years passed, and Karim moved to a bigger city, educated, and became a very successful stockholder.


One day when his son asked Karim to sign the paper for a field trip and pay the amount, he suddenly remembered his teacher’s generosity years ago and decided to pay a visit to their old town and maybe find his former teacher.


It wasn’t hard to find his former teacher in their small hometown because everyone knew each other. The teacher was an old retired man living in a small rented house. Karim knocked on the door and introduced himself. The teacher’s wife invited him inside. The teacher got excited to see one of his students coming to visit. Karim told the story of the teacher’s generosity to the teacher’s wife.


Karim said: “ I wanted to reciprocate your kindness.” and gave the teacher a large envelope.”

Karim said: “Don’t open the envelope until I am gone.”


When the teacher opened the envelope later, there was the deed of that rented house under the teacher’s name.

  18. Kindness is a choice, a heart reciprocating the love. Seen through the paid… forward love of God! A house is not a home, without reciprocated love! Nice share!
