Once upon a time, there was a small, rural village that was always in need of resources. People were struggling, as they needed more food, shelter and other goods to live properly. The villagers were always looking for ways to get more of these things, but it seemed like an uphill battle.

One day, a strange traveler came to the village. He introduced himself as the Outlander and said he could help the villagers. He offered to give them a magical seed that he said would help them grow food, build homes, and get all the goods they needed. He said that if they planted the seed and cared for it, it would grow and multiply, so the villagers could have enough to feed and house themselves.

The villagers were excited at the chance to become more self-sufficient and accepted the Outlander’s offer. They planted the seed and faithfully cared for it, and soon it started to grow. The village was soon thriving with more food, homes, and goods than they ever thought possible.

But as the years went on, the villagers started to become complacent and uncaring with their newfound good fortune. They started to take things for granted, expecting them to be available no matter what. They stopped caring for the magical seed, and it eventually died out.

The villagers were suddenly plunged back into an age of scarcity, with no resources to rely on. They had to start from scratch, learning to grow food and build homes and make their own goods from scratch. It was a hard lesson, but an important one.

The moral of this story is that you should never take anything for granted. We may have times of plenty and unplentifulness, but it’s important to always be thankful for what we have and to carefully tend to it. If we are careless and don’t value what we have, it can easily be taken away.
