My Son Is Blessed for Doing the Right Thing
(Minghui.org) After I began to practice Falun Dafa in 2004, all my ailments gradually disappeared, and most importantly, the main book of the practice, Zhuan Falun, taught me how to be a good person and improve my character by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
I began to pay attention to small things in life, such as being considerate of others, being kind and helpful. My three sons witnessed the wonder of Falun Dafa through my words and deeds. I also guided them with the principles of Dafa and advised them to be a good person. They all support me and believe “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
My eldest son is a taxi driver. When he came to visit me one day, he told me that he returned over a hundred thousand yuan that was left in his taxi the other day. I was delighted and told him that he did great. He smiled and said that he knew that’s what I would say.
It went like this: he picked up a man who seemed drunk the other day. After he dropped him off, my son went on driving for a while. He happened to take a look at the back seat and saw a bag. It contained over a hundred thousand yuan! “Wow, that is a lot of money! If it were me, I would go crazy if I lost all that money! I better find him and return the money to him soon.” My son exclaimed.
My son found in the bag an elementary school workbook with the names of the school, the class, and the student on it. He immediately drove to the school and found the teacher of the class. He asked the teacher to contact the concerned parents for the lost item. When the parents came and found their lost money, they knelt down to my son and thanked him profusely. They stated that if my son did not return the money, they would not even have known where they lost the money, let alone get it back. They took out 500 yuan, but he refused to accept it. “I did what I should. I can not take your money.”
I told my son how proud I was of him. “You did so well! Heaven is watching over each and every one of us. Good is rewarded and evil punished.”
“You are so right! I was struggling to make a living with the taxi driving. Since I returned the money, my business picked up day by day. I hardly have time for lunch now. After all the expenses daily, I can still make over 500 yuan a day. I am blessed for doing the right thing!”
