A short moral story in English: The value of teamwork Moral stories in English: The importance of being honest are the most common types of moral stories that we tell children to teach them how to behave and how to make the right choices in life, especially when dealing with others.
Our dog Albert
Everyone who knew Albert loved him because he was such a nice and friendly dog. One day while he was out walking with his master, they saw a cat at some distance. Albert wanted to chase it and run after it but when his master told him to stay he sat down right where he was with a feeling of obedience.
Albert’s master patted him and said that is what made him so good and obedient. It was because he listened to his masters’ words and did not ignore them. It is important for us humans too that we listen to our parents or teachers when they tell us something important, even if we do not like it or want to do it.
If we listen carefully we will learn many things about life which can help us later on in life. Even if you are an adult you should still listen carefully when someone tells you something important as sometimes your parents know best!
My wife Judith
I don’t really believe that hard work can help you achieve your goals, but from time to time, when I do something, I begin to wonder if maybe things happen for a reason. For example, I am not very coordinated and it never seems like my shoes are laced right or that my socks match.
And then one day while on a field trip to Japan with my daughters, we stopped at a shrine to pay our respects. When we left, there was a group of old ladies sitting together next to where we were leaving our offerings.
One of them was knitting socks and another was telling her story. She said she had been doing needlework ever since she was young and could be found most days working on her handicrafts at home.
Our neighbor Peter
Once there was a man named Peter. He lived in a small village and his only source of income was farming. Though he grew enough food to feed himself, he had little left over to sell at the market, since all his land was far from a good road where people passed by regularly. In addition, he also had no one to help him plow his fields or tend to his farm animals when he needed it most.
Once upon a time, there was a group of 4 people who were assigned to build a very special tower. It was supposed to be tall and elegant. It would also attract tourists from all over, which is why it had to be beautiful. And though each person worked diligently on their own part, nobody seemed able to put everything together properly.
No matter how hard they tried, they just couldn’t seem to do it right. After trying many different things, they realized they needed to work together if they wanted to succeed in building their project quickly and efficiently.
So instead of working on their parts separately, everyone helped each other as much as possible and within no time at all, they were able to complete their mission successfully!
