An unemployed graduate woke up one morning and
checked his pocket. All he had left was $10.
He decided to use it to buy food and then wait
for death as he was too proud to go begging.
He was frustrated as he could find no job,
and nobody was ready to help him.

He bought food and as he sat down to eat,
an old man and two little children came along
and asked him to help them with food as they
had not eaten for almost a week.
He looked at them. They were so lean that he
could see their bones coming out. Their eyes
had gone into the socket. With the last bit of
compassion he had, he gave them the food.
The old man and children prayed that God would
bless and prosper him and then gave him a very
old coin. The young graduate said to them 'you
need the prayer more than I do' With no money,
no job, no food, the young graduate went under
the bridge to rest and wait for death.

As he was about to sleep, he saw an old newspaper
on the ground.. He picked it up, and suddenly
he saw an advertisement for people with old coins
to come to a certain address.
He decided to go there with the old coin the old
man gave him. On getting to the place, he gave
the proprietor the coin. The proprietor screamed,
brought out a big book and showed the young graduate
a photograph. This same old coin was worth 3 million
dollars. The young graduate was overjoyed as
the proprietor gave him a bank draft for 3 million
dollars within an hour. He collected the Bank Draft
and went in search of the old man and little children.

By the time he got to where he left them eating,
they had gone. He asked the owner of the canteen
if he knew them. He said no but they left a note for
you. He quickly opened the note thinking it would
lead him to find them.

This is what the note said: 'You gave us your all
and we have rewarded you back with the coin,' signed
God the Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost.
