While on Google+ I came across a post written by my friend Mohammad Alsous. There’s always a lesson to be learned with every post he publishes. I wanted to share this with you guys, but I have to warn you that it brought me to tears.
On a bright and sunny day a man polished his prized possession–his new car. His 4 year old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car.
In a fit of 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 repeatedly.
Devastated by his own actions his knees buckled and he landed on the ground sitting.
As he sat in front of his car he looked through vision blurred with tears at the scratches his child had made. The boy had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.
The next day that man committed suicide.
Anger and Love have no limits ,,,
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.
During this year, let’s be careful to keep this thought in mind:
Things are to be used, but People are to be loved.
