A king and his four wives ¦ Motivational Short Story ¦ Inspirational Story 

A king and his four wives

Once, there was a king who had four wives. He loved all his wives, but the fourth wife was the one that he adored the most.

He always adorned her with the finest delicacies. He provided her with the best things.

His third wife was really beautiful and he loved to show her off to neighbouring kingdoms.

Motivational Short Story

His second wife was very kind, patient and considerate. Whenever the king faced some problems with decisions and he needs advice, he would go to her and she would help him in getting through that decision.

The first wife was very loyal partner and made great contribution in maintaining the King's health and wealth. But the king was very ignorant towards her. He hardly took notice of her.

Motivational Short Story

A king and his four wives

One day the king fell ill and he knew he was going to die soon. 

He wondered, "I now have four wives with me, but when I die, I'll be alone. 

He called his fourth wife and asked," I love you the most. When I die, will you follow me to keep me to keep me company? "

The fourth wife refused and walked away without saying any other word. 

The king felt very sad. 

Motivational Short Story

The third wife also refused saying, "No, I can't. Life is too good and I am going to remarry after you die." 

The king then asked his second wife the same question and even she refused to the King saying, No, I can't help you out this time. 

The king was devastated. 

Then a voice came from outside," I will go with you, no matter wherever you go." 

The king looked up and saw his first wife who was looking really full and suffered. 

The king said with grief, "I should have taken care of you, when I had the chance." 

Motivational Short Story

The truth is we all have those four wives in our lives. 

* The fourth wife represents our body. Whole life we try to make it look good but it will leave us when we die. 

* The third wife represents our wealth, possessions and status. When we die it goes to others. 

* The second wife represents our relatives, family and friends. No matter, how much they have been there for us, the furthest they can stay with us is - upto the grave. 

* The first wife represents our soul. In pursuit of body, wealth and pleasure of this world, we often ignore it. 

Soul is the only thing that will follow us wherever we go. 

In this world, we live for pleasures and we ignore our soul and spiritual being. 

It is the greatest gift that God has given us.

With all the other things, what we should focus on the most is, our Innerself - our Soul. 


Strengthen and 

Cherish your soul.

Till then,
