Once a man went to another town to work as a magistrate.
After working for some years, he decided to return to his wife and son. Before leaving, his master said,
“I will give you two admonitions that will help you - never change your ways, and think before you act.”
The man thought about it for a while and thanked the master for his kind and wise words.
The man set out for his hometown.
On the way he met a fellow traveler, who told him - "We are going in the same direction, but I am sure this is a shortcut, will you come with me?”
The man remembered the first admonition that the master taught him and refused to join the traveller.
Later, he heard that the traveller was robbed.
When he reached home, he was surprised to see his wife dancing with a young man in the front yard.
Thinking that his wife had remarried, he wanted to kill them both. But he remembered the second admonition and hid behind the the house to find out the truth.
He heard his wife say to the young man, “Son, you have become a great dancer, like your father!”
He realized his mistake and was happily reunited with his family.
