How many sweets do i need?

Once a boy went to a shop with his mother

The shop keeper looked at the small cute child and showed him a bottle with sweets and said, 'Dear Child, you can take the sweets.'

But the child didn’t take.

The shop keeper was surprised. He is such a small child he and why is he not taking the sweets from the bottle.

Again he said to take the sweets....

Now the mother also heard that and said, 'Take the sweets dear.'

Yet he didn’t take...

The shopkeeper seeing the child not taking the sweets, he himself took the sweets and gave it to the child.

The child was happy to get two hands full of sweets

While returning home the Mother asked the child, 'Why didn¢t you take the sweets when the shop keeper told you to take?'

The child replies, 'Mom, my hands are very small, and if I take the sweets, I can only take few. But, now you see - when uncle gave with his big hands.... how many more sweets I got.

When we take we may get little; but, when God - The Almighty gives, He gives us more beyond our expectations, more than what we can hold..!!
