The old seller replied, '$0.25 an egg, Madam.'She said to him, 'I will take 6 eggs for $1.25 or I will leave.'The old seller replied, 'Come take them at the price you want. Maybe, this is a good beginning because I have not been able to sell even a single egg today.'She took the eggs and walked away feeling she has won. She got into her fancy car and went to a posh restaurant with her friend.

There, she and her friend, ordered whatever they liked. They ate a little and left a lot of what they ordered. Then she went to pay the bill. The bill cost her $45.00, she gave $50.00 and asked the owner of the restaurant to keep the change. This incident might have seemed quite normal to the owner but, very painful to the poor egg seller.

The point is, why do we always show we have power when we buy from the needy ones? And why do we get generous to those who do not even need our generosity?My father used to buy simple goods from poor people at high prices, even though he did not need them. Sometimes he even used to pay extra for them. I got concerned by this act and asked him why does he do so? Then my father replied, "It is a charity wrapped with dignity, my child."

I have seen this behaviour twice on my travels and it disgusts me. I remember being on a cruise that went to the Orient when I was 28. An american woman beat down a poor chinese woman selling hand woven straw sun hats to less than a dollar and was so prou

"It is a charity wrapped with dignity, my child." Beautiful post and beautiful line. Thank you for sharing, Min.

The egg story may not be real, but it rang my bell to be ready for Jesus’s Return. Jesus will come like a thief in the night and even a Christ follower can be tricked if one has never just up and gifted possessions and money to complete strangers. A way t

Currently we are in Bali, Indonesia, which was hit the most of all the Indonesian islands in the pandemic due to their reliance on tourism. People are desperate here, and insist on bartering. I say stop, your price is good. Often I say no, because honestl
