$50,000 lesson in Honesty

I love this story! The video shows a 11 year old boy making an impossible hockey shot to win $50,000. The problem is that the boy’s twin brother was supposed to make the shot instead of him. The event sponsors had no way of knowing that the wrong brother made the shot. The twins father went with his boys to let the event sponsors know of the mix up. It may mean the boys don’t get the prize money.

What I love about this is the powerful lesson that the twins learn from their father about honesty. Their father is showing them that honesty is more important than $50,000. How often do you and I have the opportunity to show our kids moral lesson with such a quantifiable dollar value attached? The father of those twins gave his boys something worth far more than $50,000 that night. I love it!!
