The Poor Devotee


 

Once there lived a poor man in a village. He was so poor that he could barely feed his family only once a day. He was leading a miserable life. But he never complained to God. He was always thankful to God for what he had.

 

He was a great devotee. He went to the temple everyday to offer prayers. He used to go around the temple seven times. Then only he used to go to work.

 

One day, God felt sorry for the poor condition of his devotee. So, he kept a bag full of gold coins for him outside the temple.

 

Next morning, the devotee went to the temple. He went around the temple with his eyes closed and chanting God's name. He didn't even see the bag of gold coins.

 

The God thought, 'No one gets anything before time or more than his fortune.'
