Stories For Children:
A young boy named Charles was given a beautiful little horse as a present. This elegant and noble horse was snow-white in color and had spots, like a spaniel. His mane was as soft as silk and he had a lovely flowing tail.
When Charles was given the horse, he was told to take very good care of it. After taking it out for a ride, he was instructed to make sure his horse was taken into the stable, and to tie the reins to the manger. In this way, the spirited young horse would not go running off, galloping about the countryside.
At first, Charles was very careful to follow these instructions. He loved his horse and took great care in making sure the horse was secured every day after he was finished riding.
Unfortunately, one day Charles had been out riding longer than usual, and when he got back home, he was told that he needed to go to the house right away as his drawing teacher was waiting for him. Because he was in a hurry, Charles didn't bother to tie up his horse. On top of that, he left the stable doors open!
After his lessons were completed, Charles thought about taking his horse out for another ride, but when he got to the stables, his horse was gone! Charles ran back to the house, tears streaming down his face.
Now, the person who had given Charles this horse was also at the house that day. He took Charles by the hand and said that he hoped Charles had learned a valuable lesson from all this. Charles had lost something he cared about deeply because he didn't pay enough attention to put it safely away.
The man hoped that Charles would remember this lesson for the future, and that for now on, whatever he uses, he'll put carefully away when he his is finished with it. In that way, it will be there the next time he goes to find it. As the man explained to Charles, "Safe bind, safe find."
Stories For Children Moral: Don’t be careless with what you own. Take care of it. If you use something, put it away exactly where you found it, and make sure it is safe and secure. That way, you’ll always have it when you want it again.
