Do Not Take What Is Not Yours
Reader Star Rating:
Nine year old Larry looked at his best friends toys and wished he could have them, but he knew he couldn't afford them.
"Come on Larry, let's go and play," his best friend Andy yelled out.
"OK sure, let's play outside."
"Do you want to play ball?" Andy asked.
Larry picks up the ball and throws it to Andy.
"You can't throw," jeered Andy.
"Oh and you can," they both laughed.
Just around the corner they saw the new kids, three of them.
All five got together and started playing.
One of the new kids said to Larry, "Andy has too many cool toys, let's take some, he won't know."
As the little boy put toy cars in his pocket Larry knew it was wrong and told him so.
"Don't take what's not yours, put it back or I'll tell Andy.
"You will tell on me for taking toys that he has too many of?"
"That's right I will."
The boy took the toys out of his pocket and threw them on the ground.
Looking at Larry he told him that he would never be cool or hang out with them at school.
Larry didn't care, he said, "I would rather not be cool than take anything that is not mine."
Larry knew that he was right and would never steal from his best friend or anyone else, ever.
With a smile he went to play with Andy and had the best time ever.
