Bury the children and serve the mother
Guo Ju, a native of the Jin Dynasty, gave birth to a boy when his wife was middle-aged, and Guo Ju was worried that his family was poor and raising children would affect his mother's support, so he dug a pit and prepared to bury his son. When they were digging a pit, a pot of gold suddenly appeared two feet underground, with the inscription, "Heaven gives Guo Ju, officials must not take it." The people shall not take it". The couple received gold, went home to honor their mother, and raised their children. Since then, Guo Ju's reputation for "filial piety" has spread all over the world.
