His Children's Heritage


A farmer about to die called his sons to him and said: "My children I am now leaving this life but all that I have for you, you will find in the vineyard."

The sons supposing that he referred to some hidden gold set to work with their spades and plows and turned up the soil. They found no gold for their efforts; but then vines saw improved and strengthened by the thorough way in which soil was turned that they yielded a finer crop than they had ever yielded before.

So truly does work and effort bring its just return.
