A Pound of Butter

 
 
 
There was a farmer who sold a pound of butter to the baker. One day the baker decided to weigh the butter to see if he was getting a pound and he found that he was not. This angered him and he took the farmer to court. 
 
The judge asked the farmer if he was using any measure. The farmer replied, "your Honor, I am primitive. I don't have a proper measure, but I do have a scale."
 
The judge asked, "Then how do you weigh the butter?"
 
The farmer replied "Your Honor, long before the baker started buying butter from me, I have been buying a pound loaf of bread from him. Every day when the baker brings the bread, I put it on the scale and give him the same weight in butter."

What is the moral of the story? We get back in life what we give to others. Whenever you take an action, ask yourself this question: Am I giving fair value for what I am receiving in return? Am I getting back what I put in? Being biased become a habit. Some become so off center that that they don't even know what the truth is anymore. But who are they deceiving? Themselves!
 
Keep going,
