If the father was a farmer, then the rest of the future generations would generally follow the same route.
David comes from a family of farmers who have been in the trade for decades. His ancestors owned the land that they worked on and it stemmed from those roots.
David who resided in Nebraska, USA would have naturally followed the same route. However, a relative did not consider the interests of the family and went on to sell the land to someone else.
The eighty acres of land were sold, and David’s family no longer owned the land that they had inherited from their ancestors. The upset of his family made David determined to win the land back.
One day, the land appeared at an auction for sale. According to goodnewsnetwork.com, David and his dad decided to do whatever they can to save up and but the land back.
Having spent days and nights trying to work out how they will be able to afford to buy the land back, the day of the auction soon approached. On the day, they saw approximately 200 farmers, both David and his father felt that they would never be able to get their land back because of all of the competition.
However, they had some faith and decided to do what they can and see what happens.
When they placed their bid, they inhaled a deep breath that felt stuck forever, they were waiting for the next bid. However, to their surprise the room was silent. No one had attempted to even solicit a new bid to the point that the auctioneer had no choice but to strike with the Gavel and guarantee their winning bid.
It was a miracle that 200 farmers from Nebraska let the land go and did not even attempt to bid as they knew that it was the right thing to do.
David recalls the auction that took place in 2011 “I’ve had two profoundly humbling days in my life. The first was the day my son was born. The second was that unforgettable day at the Auction House,” he said.
This is an example of the true power of kindness and considering the interests of others over your own.
