Read this beautiful story carefully.
My boss drove a luxury car everyday and
it was my duty to greet him and to open
the gates for him, as I worked as a
watchman in his villa. But he never
responded back to my greetings.
One day he saw me opening the garbage
bags outside the villa in search for any
left over food. But, as usual he never
even looked at me, it was like as if he
never saw anything!
The very next day I saw a paper bag at
the same place, but it was clean and the
food inside was covered well. It was fresh
and good food like someone had just
brought it from the supermarket. I
didn’t bother as to where it came from, I
just took the paper bag and I was so
happy about it.
Every day I found this paper bag at the
same place with fresh vegetables and all
that we needed for home. This became
my daily routine. I was eating and
sharing this food with my wife and kids.
I was wondering who this fool could be?!
To forget his paper bag full of fresh food
One day there was a big problem in the
villa and I was told that my boss has
died. There were too many guests
coming to the villa that day and I didn’t
get any food that day, so I thought that
one of the guests must have taken it.
But the same thing happened the 2nd
day, the 3rd day and the 4th day.
It went on like this for a few weeks and I
found it difficult to provide food for my
family, so I decided to ask the wife of my
boss for a raise in my salary or else I
would quit my job as a watchman.
After I told her, she was shocked, and
asked me, how come u never complained
about your salary for the last 2 years?
And why is this salary not enough for
I gave her so many excuses but she was
never convinced! Finally in the end, I
decided to tell her the truth, I told her
the entire story of the bag of groceries,
and as to how it was my daily provision..
She then asked me as to when this
stopped? I told her after the death of
her husband. And then I realised that I
stopped seeing the paper bag
immediately after the death of my boss.
Why didn’t I ever think of this before?
That it was my boss who was providing
this for me? I guess it was because I
never thought that a person who never
replied to my greetings could ever be
His wife started to cry and I told her to
please stop crying and that I’m really
sorry that I asked for a raise, I didn’t
know that it was your husband who was
providing me with the meals, il remain
as a watchman and be happy to provide
His wife told me, I’m crying because I’ve
finally found the 7th person my husband
was giving this bag full of food. I knew
my husband was giving 7 people
everyday, I had already found the 6
people, and all these days I was
searching for the 7th person. And today
I found out.
From that day onwards, I started to
receive the bag full of food again, but
this time his son was bringing it to my
house and giving it to my hand. But
whenever I thanked him, he never
replied! Just like his dad!
One day, I told him THANK YOU in a very
loud voice! He replied back to me to
please not be offended when he doesn’t
reply, because he has a hearing problem,
just like his dad!
Oh May God forgive us all, for we have
all, as humans, judged another person
without knowing the real story behind
their actions.. May God forgive us all and
guide us towards the right path in life.
