Golden Box
Golden Box
A man once punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box as a present.


Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, ‘This is for you, Daddy.’ He was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found the box was empty. He yelled at her, ‘Don’t you know that when you give someone a present, there’s supposed to be something inside it?’
The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said, ‘Oh, Daddy, it is not empty. I blew kisses into the box. All for you, Daddy.’ The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness. The man kept that gold box by his bed for years and whenever he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.
In a very real sense, each of us as has been given a gold container filled with unconditional love from our children, friends, family and God. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.
We should also never respond to any situation without first knowing all the details. We could end up hurting someone who was actually trying to help us.
