Used vs. Loved

Used vs. Loved
 

 While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 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. . 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 the day, 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

Ø      Watch your thoughts; they become words.

Ø      Watch your words; they become actions.

Ø      Watch your actions; they become habits.

Ø      Watch your habits they become character;

Ø      Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Ø      I’m glad a friend forwarded this to me as a reminder..

Ø      If you don’t pass this on to anybody, nothing bad will happen; if you do, you will have
ministered to someone.

Ø      Stay FAITHFUL and Be GRATEFUL

We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big
difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over
time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.
