David heard the same story when he was growing up. It tells of a lost land and an empty destiny. Before David was born, his family had been cultivating the same large piece of land for decades. But everything changed when one of the family members took possession of eighty capes. The earth is divided.
David had heard stories of what he had lost to his now estranged relative as he grew older. He wanted the family farm to be complete, so when the opportunity presented itself, he knew he had to seize the opportunity. He wasn’t sure exactly how he would go about it, but he knew it was up to him at least to try.
David arrived that day with enough money to attend the auction. However, he wasn’t sure if he could compete with the large cultivator he encountered.
David and his dad were just hoping for the best
The auctioneer started the auction with a bid. But you won’t believe what happened next – when he called for a second show, the room fell silent. No sound came out among the other 200 farmers.
The reaction was so unexpected that the auctioneer asked for a break. However, when he returned to work, no one was betting on the farm. David and the rest of the family were surprised. They easily restored the farm! But why and how was it so easy?
The farming community in Nebraska knew the story and wanted David and his family to reclaim the land. The protesters deliberately remained silent when a second bid was placed giving them a chance to win the auction. This incredible story left David and his family grateful and amazed. We see from this story that human kindness can go a long way.
