He wanted his sons to learn not to judge

The following pictures are of the same place but taken in different seasons…

There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge

things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look

at a pear tree that was a great distance away

The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in
summer, and the youngest son in the fall

When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe
what they had seen.

The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted.
The second son said no it was covered with green buds and full of promise

The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so
sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen

The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping
with fruit, full of life and fulfillment

The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they
had each seen but only one season in the tree’s life

He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season,
and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that come
from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up.

If you give up when it’s winter, you will miss the promise of your spring,
the beauty of your summer, the fulfillment of your fall.

Moral lessons

Don’t let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest

Persevere through the difficult patches and better times are sure to come some time or later
