Story

Once upon a time, there was a chicken living in an old farm. It was happily pecking the ground searching for something to eat.

PECK! PECK! PECK! PECK!

PECK! PECK! PECK! PECK!

PECK! PECK! PECK! CLUNK!!! CLUNK!!!

It was something hard and heavy.

The chicken thought, “Oh what is this? I must dig and find out.”

He dug around the item and saw that it was a large necklace made of rubies and gold. It was so beautiful and shiny.

The necklace said, “Today is your lucky day! I am the most beautiful and expensive necklace ever! Nothing is more precious than me.”

The chicken turned away and said, “You may be the most expensive necklace. You may be very costly! You may be the most beautiful. But for me, I would rather choose a single grain of rice!”

 

Moral of the Story:

“Precious things are without value to those who cannot prize them.”
