So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7 : 12
Good morning to you all. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a New Year celebration.
We had a wonderful family festival in my Church on Sunday. The family which came to lead us on that day enacted and conducted pretty simple games to reveal the simple but powerful truth behind them. A ninth grade girl told us a story which really would have touched the hearts of many. Please go ahead to know what it was.
A lady who was quite busy with cooking for her guests got tensed when her little son walked behind her so closely wherever she went. At one point, she yelled at him and pushed him badly which made him cry. He ran out as fast as he could into his bedroom and wept a lot till he slept. The lady after she finished all her work at the kitchen remembered what she did to her son. When she went into his bedroom, she found him on his bed. Then the Lord reminded her to go to the kitchen again. When she went, she saw so many beautiful flowers in various colors scattered on the floor. She came to know that the small boy followed her wherever she went just to surprise his mother with her favorite flowers. She realized how badly she hurt him without realizing his love for her. She could no longer control running to the boy. He took him into her arms. She hugged him and kissed him as if she saw him after a very long time.
What does this convey? Love has to be shared with those who deserve it. Hurting others will take just a few minutes, but bringing the relationship back in track may take years. In some cases, that would never happen. The company for which we work may remember us if we die till they find a resource to replace us. But the members of our family, especially the parents and our beloveds are those who will carry the pain throughout their lives. I love kids. I can watch and play with a kid to some extent. But watching and playing with him/her all my days is really not that easy. But the precious parents look after their children with great care. A man who is 50 years remains always a kid to his old mom and dad. And the children deserve the full love of their parents. Those who have children, please take an oath that you would never show your tensions at work place to them at home. And let us all love our parents, because they are the ones who deserve it next to the Lord. Forget whatever happened in the past years. Take this year as an opportunity to be kind and to show the love to others. Be kinder than necessary to everyone, because we don’t know what pain they’re carrying in their hearts. May God bless us all!
