The story goes back some time ago, a father punished his 3-year-old
daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and
he became infuriated when the little girl tried to decorate a box.
Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next
morning and said, "This is 4u, Father."
The father was embarrassed by his earlier over reaction,bt his anger
flared again when he found out da box was empty. Father yelled at his
3-year-old daughter,stating, "Don't you know, when you give someone a present (gift), there is supposed to be something inside?The little
girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and cried, "Oh, Father,
it's not empty at all. I blew kisses into the box. They're all for you,
The father was crushed.He put his arms around his little girl,n he begged for her forgiveness.
Only a short time later,an accident took the life of his little girl.It is
also told that her father kept that gold box by his bed for many years
and,wenevr he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss
and remember da love of his little girl who had put it there.
Moral of the Story: In a very real sense, each one of us, as humans beings, have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses... from our children, family members and friends. There is
simply no other possession, anyone could hold, more precious than this.
So what is the moral of the story?
Our tongue, and the words that come from it, has incredible power. Words have the power to hurt or to heal, to tear down or build up, and to curse or comfort. So use it very carefully. but understand the people from their heart and not just from their words.
