Share your spoon with others

I love reading books and even working at computer and writing posts at my blogs, I keep on reading about variety of topics. Most of the time I try to share those worth of writing with my readers also. I like the moral stories, quotes, and parables which teach us lessons to make our life better, to make ourselves better humans.

A few days ago one of my brother sent me this text with the title "7%"

I was first amazed to see the title, and thought may be it is about some facts and figures about any topic, but the content was really very impressing and meaningful. It is about sharing and after reading just decide either you are sharing your spoon with othesrs or not?

" 7%"

A holy man was having a conversation with the Lord one day and said,
'Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like.'

The Lord led the holy man to two doors.

He opened one of the doors and the holy man looked in. In the middle of the room was a large round table. In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew, which smelled delicious and made the holy man's mouth water.

The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. They appeared to be famished.

They were holding spoons with very long handles that were strapped to their arms and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful. But because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths.

The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering.
The Lord said, 'You have seen Hell.'

They went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same as the first one.

There was the large round table with the large pot of stew which made the holy man's mouth water. The people were equipped with the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking. The holy man said, 'I don't understand.'

It is simple,' said the Lord. 'It requires but one skill. You see they have learned to feed each other, while the greedy think only of themselves.'

It's estimated 93% won't forward this.

If you are one of the 7% who will, forward this with the title '7%'.
