"Whoever can be trusted with small things can also be trusted with large things." Luke 16:10^^Young Sanji has always dreamed of becoming king. He can hardly believe his ears when King Akbar announces he is looking for a worthy successor to take his throne--all a boy must do is care for a special seed for one month, then return to the palace with the plant.^^Sanji does his best to care for his seed, but in spite of his prayers and his best efforts, the seed refuses to sprout, and Sanji worries that his hope of becoming king is as tiny as the seed in his pot. How can he face King Akbar--and the other boys competing for the throne--without a plant?^^A dramatic ending and valuable discussion starters will help adults share with children the importance of honesty and always doing what is right, no matter what others think.
This ageless folktale brings life to the valuable lesson of always telling the truth. Seeking a successor, a king decrees that any boy who cares for a seed for a month will prevail. What should Sanji do when his seed dies?
