Hey guys! I have a great short cute story for you guys to share with your kids. Its also a great story for yourselves.
A woman entered an airport who was going to visit another country to see her mother.
While she was checking in, she noticed that they were giving out free small bags of cookies. She took a bag of cookies, put it in her purse and went to sit down. A man soon comes down to sit by her. He asked her how her day was going. She replied that it was going pretty well. After awhile of waiting, she became bored and felt a little hungry. So she grabs a cookie and starts eating it. 2 seconds later the man reaches over and grabs a cookie and eats it.
She is a little startled by this, but she ignores it and has another. Once the man is finished with his cookie, he grabs another one too. The man was very polite about it, which is what startled the woman. She figures since hes getting ‘free’ cookies, he probably would be happy. As the woman starts to become frustrated, she eats another cookie. The man looks down at the bag and realizes there is only one cookie left. He grabs the cookie, splits it in half and gives her one of the halves. After he finished eating the cookie, he smiles at her. The woman is now so angry, she grabs her things and goes to another part of the waiting room to sit down. The woman is thinking “How dare he. Who does he think he is to do that?”.
The plane was ready to be boarded shortly later and the woman enters the plane. She finds her seat and sits down. Bored, she grabs her phone to text. As shes grabbing her phone out of her purse, she finds her bag of cookies. Un-opened, and not eaten.
She soon realizes that the bag of cookies she was eating out of was HIS bag of cookies.
She starts to feel terrible and realizes what she had done. Now she understands why the man was sharing with her and smiling at her.
Pass this story onto your kids and remind them to be as christ-like as possible, in everyday activities.
