Used vs. Loved

While clearing out some old email at work today, I found this gem that was forwarded to me long ago. Hope you enjoy!

While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 year 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 “I LOVE YOU DAD”. The next day that man committed suicide.

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.

During this year, let’s be careful to keep this thought in mind:
Things are to be used, but people are to be loved. Be yourself. This is the only day we have. Have a nice day, best regards.

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

I’m glad a friend forwarded this to me as a reminder.
God bless you; I hope you are having a wonderful day!
If you don’t pass this on to anybody, nothing bad will happen; if you do, you will have ministered to someone. The Will of God will never take you to where the Grace of God will not protect you.

Stay faithful and be grateful
