The Moral of the Story

Hundreds of years ago there was a rabbi who was sitting alone enjoying a banquet. When passerbys came upon this odd sight, they inquired, "Rabbi, What is the celebration? Why are you alone at this banquet? Where are the guests?"

The rabbi responded, "This celebration is for someone who has received a prestigious award for something he has accomplished. I am alone because the other guests are hundreds of miles away, celebrating with the recipient."

"Who," asked the passerbys, "is receiving this great award that warrants such a lavish banquet?"

"Sadly, I do not know the gentleman, nor his guests; but still I share in his great accomplishment and in his joy!" was the rabbi's generous response.

The moral of the story?

You tell me what you think!
