Honesty is the Best Policy

Once there lived a wood-cutter in a village. He was very poor. He used to cut the trees in the nearby forest to sell the wood in the market. One day, he was cutting a tree just on the bank of a river. By chance, his axe slipped and fell into the river. He was helpless. His axe was the only source of earning for him. He started crying bitterly.

The angel of mercy appeared before him. He asked the woodcutter why he was crying. The woodcutter told him the whole matter. The angel took pity on him. He dived into the river and came up with a golden axe. He asked the woodcutter if that was his axe. The woodcutter told that that was not his axe.

The angel dived into the water again and appeared with a silver axe. The woodcutter again refused to take that axe as that was not his. The angel dived the third time and brought the iron axe. The woodcutter was overjoyed to see his own axe. He accepted that at once.

The angel was greatly impressed by his honesty. He gave him other three axes as the reward of his honesty.
