Maturity Of Six Year Old Boy

It is important to understand that, at the end of the day, you will not remember a person with a beautiful face, you will only remember a person with a beautiful heart and soul. Here is a story which emphasizes on the same. Read on to know what happens.

Brother And Sister

A 6-year-old boy was at the market with his 4-year-old sister. Suddenly, the boy realized that his sister was behind.
He stopped and looked back. Her sister stood in front of a toy store and was watching something with a lot of interest.

The Doll

The boy went back to her and asked, “Do you want something?” The sister pointed at the doll. The boy held her hand and like a responsible elder brother gave that doll to her. The sister was very very happy…

The Shopkeeper

The shopkeeper was watching everything and getting amused to see the matured behavior of the boy…
Now the boy came to the counter and asked the shopkeeper, “What is the cost of this doll, Sir? !”
The shopkeeper was a cool man and had experienced the odds of life. So he asked the boy with a lot of love & affection, “Well, What can you pay?”

Sea Shells

The boy took out all the shells that he had collected from the seashore, from his pocket and gave them to the shopkeeper. The shopkeeper took the shells and started counting as if he were counting the currency. Then he looked at the boy. The boy asked him worriedly, “Is it less?”
The shopkeeper said, “No, No… These are more than the cost. So I will return the remaining.” Saying so, he kept only 4 shells with him and returned the remaining.
The boy very happily kept those shells back in his pocket and went away with his sister.

The Question

The boy very happily kept those shells back in his pocket and went away with his sister.
A servant in that shop got very surprised watching all these. He asked his master, “Sir! You gave away such a costly doll just for 4 shells ???”
The shopkeeper said with a smile, “Well, for us these are mere shells.
But for that boy, these shells are very precious. And at this age, he does not understand what money is, but when he will grow up, he definitely will. And when he remembers that instead of buying money, he bought a doll with the shells, he will remember me and believe that the world is full of good people.
It will help him develop a positive attitude and he too, in turn, will feel motivated to be Good.”
