While a man was polishing his car, his 6 year old son picked a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car.
In anger, the man took the child’s hand and hit it many times, not realizing he was using a wrench.
At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures. When the child saw his father with painful eyes, he asked, ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’
The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times.
Devastated by his own action and sitting in front of the car he looked at the scratches; the child had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.
The next day that man committed suicide.
Love and anger have no limits; choose the first to have a beautiful and lovely life.
Things are to be used and people are to be beloved. But the problem in today’s world is that, people are used and things are loved.
As this year is going to an end let’s be careful to keep this thought in mind in the coming year: Things are to be used, but people are to be loved.
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also – Matthew 6 : 19 – 21.
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things – 1 Corinthians 13 : 4 -7.
God bless you all.
