Short Stories on Honesty and Trust

#1 – Inspiring Short Story about Honesty

One morning, during summer vacation I was biking around our Village, I noticed a man whose going to the sari-sari store, while walking he didn’t notice that he dropped his P 100 bill. I picked his money and I gave it to him, he said thank you little boy and he smiled at me.

My parents always tell us that we will always be honest. Honesty is absolutely essential for success in life. Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness. Thus goodness is attained. Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest. Thus honesty is attained.

Here is our next short stories about trust.

#2 – Short Story about Trust

Here is a short story with a beautiful message.

Little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. Father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter,

‘Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.’

The little girl said, ‘No, Dad. You hold my hand.’

‘What’s the difference?’ Asked the puzzled father.

‘There’s a big difference,’ replied the little girl.

‘If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens,
you will never let my hand go.’

In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond.

So hold the hand of the person who loves you rather than expecting them to hold yours. Because holding hands is not only about taking care, its also about trust and love you have for that person.

#4 A wonderful moral story for kids for bedtime.

What is the ultimate truth of life?

One night, just before the shopkeeper was about to close the shop, a dog came into the shop.
There was a bag in its mouth. The bag had a list of items to be bought and money. The shopkeeper took the money and kept the items in the bag.

Immediately, The dog picked up the bag of items and left. The shopkeeper was surprised and went behind the dog to see who the owner was.

The dog waited at the bus stop. After sometime, a bus came and the dog got into the bus. As soon as the conductor came, it moved forward to show his neck belt which had money and the address as well. The conductor took the money and put the ticket in his neck belt again.

When it reached the destination, the dog went to the front and wagged his tail indicating that he wanted to get down. The moment the bus stopped, it got down. The shopkeeper was still following it.

The dog knocked on the door of a house with its legs. Its owner came from inside and beat it with a stick.

The shocked shopkeeper asked him “why are you beating the dog?”, to which the owner replied, “he disturbed my sleep. It could have taken the keys with it.”

This is the ultimate truth of life. There is no end to the expectations people have from you. The moment you go wrong, they start pointing at our mistakes. All the good done in the past is forgotten. Any small mistake committed then gets magnified. This is the nature of this material world.

Moral stories are a great way to teach children the importance of discipline. Hope you found the story useful. We will be back with some more wonderful stories in our next post.
