Joy and Heron

A fisherman and his dog are going fishing. The heron steals the worms. At first the dog is upset, but then he learns why the heron did it and decides to be kind.
This story is full of moral. We always judge someone’s mistake so fast without knowing the truth. 
If we help someone else, we'll get more as rewards.
