Write a paragraph on “The Story of the True Ring.” What lesson does it teach?
A rich man had a very beautiful ring. It was declared that before he died, he would pass the ring on to the worthiest of his sons. The son who received the ring, would inherit his property and be the head of the family after his death.
In this way the ring passed from father to son through several hundred years. At last it came into the hands of a man who had three sons.
The man loved his sons equally. He promised the ring to each of them. So he got two rings made. The three rings were alike. When the man was dying, he secretly gave each of the sons a ring. So after his death each claimed the inheritance. In order to prove their claim, each showed a ring. Everyone found the rings so similar that no one could tell which was the true ring. So the question of inheritance could not be solved. It is clear from the story that all the religions are true.
