We all know the story of the greedy king 
named Midas. He had a lot of gold and the 
more he had the more he wanted. He stored 
all the gold in his vaults and used to spend 
time every day counting it.
One day, while he was counting a stranger,
came from nowhere and said he would grant him
a wish. The king was delighted and said, 
"I would like everything I touch to turn to 
gold." The stranger asked the king, Are you 
sure?" The king replied, "Yes." So the stranger 


said, "Starting tomorrow morning with the 
sun rays you will get the golden touch." The 

king thought he must be dreaming, this 

couldn't be true. But the next day when he 
woke up, he touched the bed, his clothes, and 

everything turned to gold. He looked out of 

the window and saw his daughter playing in the garden. He decided to give her a surprise and
thought she would be happy. But before 
he went to the garden he decided to read a 
book. The moment he touched it, it turned into gold and he couldn't read it. Then he sat to have breakfast and the moment he touched the fruit and the glass of water, they turned tto gold
. He was getting hungry and he said to 
himself, "I can't eat and drink gold." Just about
that time his daughter came running 
and he hugged her and she turned into a gold 
statue. There were no more smiles left.

The king bowed his head and started crying. 

The stranger who gave the wish came again 
and asked the king if he was happy with his 

golden touch. The king said he was the most 
miserable man. The stranger asked, "What 
would you rather have, your food and loving 
daughter or lumps of gold and her golden 
statue?" The king cried and asked for 
forgiveness. He said, "I will give up all my gold
. Please give me my daughter back 
because without her I have lost everything wo 
rth having." The stranger said to the king, 
"You have become wiser than before" and he 
reversed the spell. He got his daughter back in 
his arms and the king learned a lesson that he 
never forget for the rest of his life.
What is the moral of the story? 

1. Distorted values lead to tragedy.

2. Sometimes getting what you want may be a 

bigger tragedy than not getting what you 

3. Unlike the game of soccer where players can
be substituted, the game of life allows no 
substitutions or replays. We may not get a 
second chance to reverse our tragedies, as the 
king did.
