Placing Our Love on Things That Matter Most

True love is selfless and unconditional. True love knows no boundaries. It is not judgmental, but highly accommodating. The Backstreet Boys sang, “I don’t care who you are, where you’re from, what you do, as long as you love me.” Unconditional love only gives, but does not take anything in return. According to Robert Wenger:

A dog will teach you unconditional love. If you can have that in your life, things won’t be too bad.

Personally, I believe when you look into your mother’s eyes, you know that is the purest love you can find on this earth. It baffles me how we place our priorities on perishables like our expensive smart phones, and protect them, at the expense of human, showing love what ideally matters and requires our love. 

This story will make my point easy to grasp. While a man was polishing his new car, his 6 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…. In this year, let’s be careful to keep this thought in mind: Things are to be used, but People are to be loved. Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits they become character;Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. I’m glad a friend forwarded this to me as a reminder. God bless you. If you don’t pass this on nothing bad will happen; if you do, you might change someones life. Do u know the relationship between your two eyes? They blink together, move together, cry together, see things together & sleep together. Even though they never see each other. Friendship should be just like that! Life is vanity without FRIENDS. Who is your best friend? Share this with all your good friends.
