There was once a 100 square meter piece of farm land that is located away from the main city. It was left alone by the owner and as a result it was over run by weeds. People no longer took notice of the land. It is just an area where people passed by without even taking a look.
Then one day a rich man saw the unused farm land and decided to buy it. The owner thought of taking the opportunity and sell it at a very high price. The owner refuse to lower the price. Though the man is rich enough to pay, he knew that the price was unfair. In fact his family and good friends told him that its not worth it.
" Why waste good money on a land where there is no chance of good profit?"
"Why don't you buy a much better and bigger land?"
"It's not worth your attention."
The man knows that they are right. If ever he will be able to get any profit from it, he would had to spend more time, money and effort. Yet the profit will not be much. However, the rich man saw something that no one else was able to see. So He bought it from at a very hig price and work at it.
He hired man to take care of it. He would go to the land nearly everyday. In fact, there were times when he himself will do the removal of weeds, planting of the seeds and watering. He took good care of the land. Then the land finally began to bear fruits. The rich man became so happy that he decided to celebrate this along with all his family, freinds and workers. Many of them were not able to appreciate his excitement. Even his workers, who had work on the field, were not able to understand him.
Then on the night of the celebration, his wife decided to ask him.
"What is it that you see in this land that makes you so happy?" she asked.
The man replied,
" I see myself in this farm. I too don't deserve the slightest attention of God. Yet, God took notice of me. He love me and even bought me at the highest price. By working on this feild, I realize the hard work that God is doing in my life. He saw me as I really am and love me. More than that, God saw what I can be."
The wife smiled and answered, " Well, God still has a lot of work to do on you and me too."
They both smile and look at the stars that trinkle across the sky.
