Once upon a time is a phrase used in fairy tales A fairy tales is a story for children involving unbelievable things such as fairies wizards goblins dwarfs dragons princesses knights and other magical creatures Many of these fairy tales were created years ago to entertain children There are two brothers who created many of these tales they are Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm The brothers made up stories ranging from fairy tales to religious allegories One religious allegory that I thought was intriguing was The Poor Man and the Rich Man This story was written between the late 1700s and the early 1800s In the story the brothers showed how money and appearance change the way people view other people The rich man in the story can be seen as rude uncaring and self-involved For example Then the rich man heard someone knocking at his door he opened the window and asked the stranger what he wanted The Lord answered I only ask for a nights lodging Then the rich man looked at the traveler from head to foot and as the Lord was wearing common clothes and did not look like one who had much money in his pocket he shook his head and said no I cannot take you in my rooms are full of herbs and seeds Grimm 1999 So the rich man without knowing the traveler was the Lord sent him away because he looked like a common poor man We know that when the Grimm Brothers lived people were very religious therefore had the rich man known it was the Lord he would have given the Lord the best of everything he had Since the rich man did not give the Lord a chance he lost out on the Lords free gifts When someone comes knocking on our door we should not just help him or her for the pure motive of getting something out of it
