Value people rather than possessions in your life

Value- Right Conduct

Sub Value- Forgiving, gratitude

This is a  story  about two friends  who were walking through the desert. At some point , during their journey  across the desert,  they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face.

The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand “Today my best friend slapped me in the face”.

They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the quicksand and started sinking, but  his friend saved him. After he recovered from the near sinking, he wrote on a stone “Today my best friend saved my life”.

The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, “When  I slapped you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?” The other friend replied “When someone hurts us we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.

Learning

Do not value the things you have in your life. But value who you have in your life.
