They we're screaming and shouting for joy making the neighbors think that they won the lottery. However, one of them found a deposit slip with a woman's name on it and decided to call her the following morning.

Acknowledging that she indeed left a large sum amount of money and needs it; they decided to meet her. Only to find she was already an elderly woman, she cried in gratitude upon the return of her hard earned money. It was found out that the couch was donated to Salvation Army while she was ill.

Admitting that they had the intention of keeping the found money but they decided not to do so; At the end of the day it wasn't theirs and there was a lead to whom it belonged.

May we also do the same when confronted with the same situation. We all need money but hard earned money is more satisfying than easy picked up money.
