Once there lives a very poor family. Two of the children, two boys Albrecht and Albert wanted to go to university. But there was no money. They decided to toss a coin. The winner would go to university and the loser would go down the mines. Then in four years they would swop places.
Albrecht won and he went to university. His brother Albert gave him money while he was studying. Four year later Albrecht returned and as promised he said to his brother that is was his turn to go and study.
However, Albert began to cry and he said ‘I cannot go because my hands have arthritis. I cannot hold a paint brush. Albrecht was very sad when he heard this. Years later Albrecht drew a picture of old, arthritic hands. Many believe he drew the hands of his brother.
This story is about the unconditional love one brother had for another. Albert did not think about himself but only about his brother. This story reminds us that God loves us conditionally and that he will always be there for us. We can ask God for anything and he will always answer our prayer.
