Malachi was part of a family with three children, and they lived in a small village outside a wealthy city. His parents tried to make ends meet, but they usually had to forgo necessities. One day, Malachi found a wallet full of money. He knew it would help his family get out of poverty, but he chose to search for the wallet’s owner to return it instead of keeping what was inside. The owner became so inspired by the child’s honesty and wanted to do something to help. He was moved at the moment and cried about it, but he was shocked to hear the boy’s plea. Here is their story.
The Lucky Find
Malachi was out one day looking to find glass bottles to sell. He noticed something dark and shiny jutting from a storm drain while sifting through the mess at the side of the road, and it was a wallet! What would he do?
Seeing What’s Inside
Shocked that it hadn’t gotten washed away, Malachi fished it out. The leather looked new because it was clean and polished, so he thought he could sell it and help his family put food on the table. However, he gasped when he opened it!
