FFfAW-Magical Jars

Philandro set up his little business on Sameway Street where most of the foot traffic occurs since the markets were on this street as well.

His pottery jars were special. In fact, they were very special, but very few people knew.

Whatever liquid was put into these jars, the jars would then produce a never ending supply.

Philandro had a hard time selling his jars because people wouldn't believe him that they were magical.

One day, an old lady decided to believe him and purchased one of the jars. She was surprised when she filled the jar with milk for her cats and the jar would never empty. She decided she would sell some of her possessions and buy all the jars that Philandro had.

The old lady filled all the jars with milk and was happy to see them always overflowing with milk. One day the jars of milk had all soured.

The moral of the story is:

Sharing with others ensure good things always grow but Greed will definitely stop that magical flow.

  1. Really enjoyed that little morality story. That would make an awesome children’s books with a few illustrations to go with. You might consider that. πŸ™‚ ❀

  2. Excellent piece PJ. A wonderful didactic tale and the lesson at the end was very good and the whole piece written well πŸ™‚ Too greedy when a jar of two would have been quite enough.

  3. Great moral to this story! Having too much can sometimes be just as bad as not having enough! The pleasure you receive can soon run out in spite of what you think. She learned a lesson and perhaps it will help her with another decison in her life she is faced with.

  4. Wow what a magical story and moral! Very creative, I love the idea you got from the pic. I love the stories you come up with from these prompts…you have quite the imagination!! xo
