Once upon a time in a kingdom far, far away lived a little boy named Jack. He was an only child and his parents were very loving. Jack was a kind-hearted boy who always helped others in need.
One day, Jack and his parents decided to go on a holiday to the nearby mountain. They travelled deep into the forest with their luggage and were soon lost. Jack panicked as he was scared of the howling winds and the shadows in the trees.
Suddenly, they noticed a small cave near the foot of the mountain. Jack’s parents decided to take shelter there until they could figure out how to get back home.
Jack peeked into the cave. It was filled with amazing treasures! The walls were draped with precious stones and jewels and the far end of the cave was filled with bags of gold coins. It was like a secret treasure chamber.
Jack was filled with excitement and wanted to take back some of the riches. He quickly grabbed a pouch of gold coins and ran back to his parents.
His parents were shocked to see him with the pouch of gold coins. They scolded him for stealing and told him to put the money back. Jack was devastated and felt very guilty about what he did.
He remembered the moral of the story his mother told him time and time again: “Be generous and kind and follow the Golden Rule; do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
Jack understood that stealing was not the right thing to do. He apologized to his parents and, with remorse in his heart, replaced the pouch of coins in the cave and ran back out, apologetic and ashamed.
Jack realized the importance of following the Golden Rule and being honest and true. He had learned a valuable lesson that day and vowed never to steal again.
The moral of the story is to be generous and kind, and to remember and follow the golden rule. By being honest, it is possible to learn valuable lessons and not make the same mistakes again.
