THINGS ARE TO BE USED AND PEOPLE ARE TO BE LOVED. Let us look at the case of a man; while he was polishing his new car and his 6 years old daughter picked up a tool 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 her fingers due to multiple fractures.
When the child saw her father…. with painful eyes, she 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 actions…. sitting in front of that car, he looked at the scratches; the child had written:
“I LOVE MY DAD”
Anger and Love have no limits; choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life … Things are to be used and people are to be loved! But the problem in today’s world is that, people are used and things are loved.
Let’s be careful to keep this thought in mind: 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 destiny!
I’m glad a friend shared this with me as a reminder. If you share this with others, you might change someone’s life.
Do you know the relationship between your two eyes? They blink together, move together, cry together, see things together and sleep together. Even though they never see each other.
Friendship should be just like that!
Life is vanity without FRIENDS!
I’m so glad to have you people as my friends!
