Today I came across a short story, it goes:
“While a man was polishing his new car, his 6 yr old son picked up 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 actions…….sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches; the child had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.The next day that man committed suicide.”
Learn to Love What’s Important to You
You see, we human sometimes are just blind to what are the things that truly deserved our love and care. We can be so obsessed on monetary gain that we hurt so many people along the way. We can also argue with our parents and wife over trivial things like our phones, cameras, cars being damaged accidentally etc.
So the question here is, ” Have you fallen in love with your belonging and money?”
Things that can be bought are meant to be used, aiding us in our daily life and not to be love. When it is used, it is meant to get wear and tear and eventually broken and get replaced.
Family ties that cannot be bought are meant to be love. They shower love back to us, nurture our soul and act as our pillar of strength when we needed them. The relationship with them will only get better and better with time. These blood ties can be be broken and once the person is gone it can never be replaced.
So dear readers, paused for a moment and ask yourself:
Today, where have you placed your love in?
