THE WEIGHT OF A FLOWER


THE Prince’s friends and admirers decided to weigh him against ornaments of gold as a token of their loyalty and devotion. He was ceremoniously seated in one pan of the scales while heavy ornaments of gold were piled in the other. But the scales would not balance

Then there came his beloved, fragrant in body and mind with the freshness of chastity. She was quick to notice the helpless bewilderment of the group surrounding the Prince. Impulsively, she tossed into the pan a blooming rose she was holding in her hand and instantly the scales turned!

All marveled at this inexplicable phenomenon. How could a delicate flower weigh down the pan that their heavy gold ornaments had failed to bring down? The love and purity that fills a woman’s heart lends weight to things light as a flower, making them heavier than gold.
