Have a little time on your hands?

Read The Greatest Gift in the World by Og Mandino

Here is the legend of Hafid, a camel boy of two thousand years ago, and his burning desire to improve his lowly position in life.  To prove his potential ability he is dispatched to Bethlehem by his master, the great caravan merchant, Pathos, to sell only one robe. He fails, and in a moment of pity and compassion, gives the robe to warm a new born baby in a cave near the inn.

Hafid returns to the caravan in shame but he is accompanied by a bright star, shining above his head.  The phenomenon is interpenetrated by Pathos to be a sign from the gods, and he gives Hafid ten ancient scrolls which contain the wisdom necessary for the boy to achieve all his ambitions. Hafid applies the secrets of success found in the scrolls to become a compassionate, warm-hearted, wise, understanding and perceptive human being.

As the legend comes to a close, an old Hafid is visited by a very special person who relates a famous and mystical story concerning an infant in a cave and a brilliant star.  As Hafid listens well, he now understands the full meaning of THE GREATEST GIFT IN THE WORLD.
