One day my mother was cooking in the kitchen. I was waiting for my lunch. Suddenly a Saint came outside of our house. He said that he was hungry and he needs some food. My mother was not agreeing to give him food. But I told my mother that giving food to a needy is a good deed.
At first, she disagreed with me but after a lot of continuous efforts by me, she agreed. Then I gave food to that Saint. He said, "The fruit of your work will be received by you soon." I and my mother didn't understand the meaning of his lines. Then he went away. At night, while sleeping I kept on continuously thinking the meaning of his lines. But I failed. The next day that Saint came again. We again gave food and he again said "The fruit of your work will be received by you soon" and he went back. This time we ignored him. He kept coming again and again to our house. My mother said "What a nuisance!" I also became very tensed. So, the next time he came we decided to add poison in the food and gave that food to that Saint. Suddenly a feeling of kindness arose in ourselves. We gave him good and nutritious food. He said those lines again and went back. After some time my father came home. He was very tired. He told us that he was very hungry and was about to faint in his way but an "A Good Saint" gave him food. We realized that he was the same saint to whom we gave food every day. We thought that if we gave him poisonous food my father would have died. We understood the meaning of his lines. That incident has changed my and my mother's perspective and from then we gave food to all the needy.
