An Inspiring Tale

The Baker and the Farmer

A baker in a little country town bought the butter he used from a nearby farmer. One day he suspected that the bricks of butter were not full pounds, and for several days he weighed them.He was right. They were short weight, and he had the farmer arrested. At the trial the judge said to the farmer, “I presume you have scales?”

“No, your honor.” 

“Then how do you manage to weigh the butter you sell?” inquired the judge.

The farmer replied, “That’s easily explained, your honor. I have balances and for a weight I use a one-pound loaf I buy from the baker.”

Moral of the story – We must be fair when dealing with others in the same way we want them to deal fairly with us.
