Hello mylotters! There is just one question that pop up my mind regarding finding something valuable along your path your throdding, like a piece of jewellery or cash, that happens to be there along the path that you walk through, will you consider it to be a miracle sent by God for you or a test of your honesty? Specially when you are in a situation that you are very down and out financially? Will you keep it or will you give it to authorities?

In an ideal sense,one ought to give it to authorities as it is immoral to accept someone's lost asset. My conscience hardly allows me to grab such an unauthorised article,on which I have no moral and legal rights. At times,it may be difficult to resist the temptation of the wealth,but honesty and moral character ultimately adds strength and happiness,in all aspects of life. It is unfortunate that the quality and moral value of social life has come down everywhere. But one needs to be alert and to maintain restraint. Thanks.

Sounds to me more like a test of honesty than a miracle. Honestly I've never found anything like that in my path. And I don't think I would like my honesty be tested this way. And have I been tested for honesty? Yes I have.
