Weekend Story-The Selfish Farmer
October 24, 2022
There was once a farmer who was known for producing abundant crops year after year. There was something unique about this farmer. He was very generous, sharing the best seeds he used for his own farm with all the other farmers in the vicinity.
When asked why he was so generous in sharing his best seeds with others, he responded thus.
“I am generous for a selfish reason. Winds collect pollen and carry it to adjacent fields. If my neighbors use the best seeds, the quality of their crops goes up. And when the wind blows their pollen over, the quality of my crop would also go up.”
