COMPREHENSION AND SUMMARY
1. Read the, following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.
Our mother used to tell us different stories during evening time, especially after the dinner time. She was a good narrator; she used to narrate many stories.
I remember one thing mother taught us, the time she would be narrating the stories. She put emphasis on giving to the poor.
She used to say; "Giving to the poor can make up for sin, just as water can put out the blazing fire. Anyone who is responding to others with acts of kindness is thinking of the future, because he will find help if he ever falls on hard times." She would say my son, don't prevent the poor from making a living or keeping them waiting in their needs. Never give a hungry person a reason to feel isolated. Don't add trouble to someone who is already in trouble. If he is in need, don't put off giving to him; don't refuse to help the beggar who is in distress. Don't turn your back on a poor person or give him any reason to curse you. Make yourself popular in the community. Bow your head to the men of authority. Listen to what the poor have to say and answer them politely. Protect the poor people from those who want to hurt them and be firm in your judgements. Be like a father to orphans who provide for them with help since their parents can no longer provide for them. Then you will feel proud of helping people who are in need of help.
For the people you help will never forget what you do for them even when you are not around. Everyone will take you as a friend because you are always there when they need you. Then you will live the proverb "A friend in need is a friend indeed" which justifies your true colour.
After the story, I thought of starting doing good things to the people who need our help. I knew that some people need bread while others throw it away, other people need water while others have their tanks full of water in their houses but they don't get a chance to help those who are missing, because they either don't meet each other or they don't know anything about poor people. It is my wish to be an example in my community.
