Story of the Month: Who is the Greatest?

A long time ago a king wanted to find and honor the greatest person among his people. Someone with wealth was brought before him. A doctor who had cured the king was brought into his presence. A judge came to be acknowledged. Many others were considered, and the task was more difficult than the king imagined.

Finally, an old woman was brought before the king. “Who is this? What great things has she done?”

The king’s aide said, “Do you think all the others are to be honored?’

“Yes," said the king.

“Then she is the greatest among them. She is their teacher!”

The king bowed before the old woman and declared her to be greatest among his people.
