Who or what do we love more?

Value- Peace, Patience

Sub value- Avoid being hasty, control of anger

 

A man was polishing his new car; when his 4 yr old daughter picked up a stone and scratched on the side of the car. In anger, the furious man took his child’s hand & hit it many times, not realizing he was using a wrench. Later when realization dawned and he rushed his child to the hospital, it was too late, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.

When the child saw her father, with painful eyes he asked ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’ The man was so hurt and speechless. He went back to the car and kicked it many times. Devastated by his own actions, sitting in front of the car he looked at the scratches, His daughter had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.

love my dad

Learning

Anger and Love have no limit.  We must always remember that “Things are to be used and people are to be loved”.  But sadly in today’s world  “People are being used & Things are being loved. If we develop patience and control of our anger we can develop love towards all.
