One day at meal time, the eldest child served the meat as usual. But this time she gave only a tiny piece to her father and a tiny piece to her mother.
She said to her parents, “You ate yours, now it is our time. We are old enough.”
She served most of the meat to her brothers and sisters.
The father remembered what he did while his children were young.
Mother and father agreed that it was not the right thing to do. They asked for forgiveness.
The children promised that they would not repeat this mistake with their own children.
