- There is an age-old saying that charity begins at home and sometimes its difficult to understand what is meant by it
- One father, Xilombe Kharidzha, recently learnt the true meaning of this message from an unexpected teacher
- His small son recently showed him the extent of his kindness after sacrificing a gift that had been given to him
Parents will often find great inspiration and even life lessons in their experiences with their children and this story is a great example.
Xilombe Kharidzha recently shared an experience that he had with his young son to the #I'mStaying group which taught him a lesson in humility.
The proud dad shared that his son had received a gift from his grandma and had made an unusual request:
"My son was given R50.00 by his grandmother and he asked me to take half of the money to add petrol in the car. And when I asked him why?"
His son's response had caught him completely off guard and the dad says that he was humbled by the gesture:
"He told me that he is giving me because I always buy him things that he needs. I was humbled by his words. Charity begins at home."
South Africans were inspired by the sweet story, take a look at just a few responses to the post below:
Calven CL Lusenga- "Big ups to the King at least he didn't say take all of it."
