The school bell rang and the children ran down to the lunchroom.
The Jewish day school was having a special lunch which included treats
that parents had brought in as a fundraiser for the school. At the
beginning of the lunch line there was a basket full of apples. Next to the apples, a teacher had placed a little card that read, "Take only one, Hashem is watching."
Later on in the line there was a big plate of
cookies that was already half empty. There was a small piece of paper laid up against the plate with a note written in a child's sloppy handwriting that read, "TAKE AS MANY AS YOU WANT, HASHEM IS WATCHING THE APPLES."
