Love Thy Brother
While a young man is eagerly unboxing his brand-new mobile phone,his four-year-old brother swiftly ran to where he stood and tried to snip the box from him. As he dragged the object away, it fell on the floor and had a minor scratch.
Bursting with anger, the man carried his brother in his arms and brought him to the balcony. Then, the little child moaned as loud as he could when his brother lifted him up into the air. “Look at the ground and I will make you kiss the grass if you mess with my things again, understood?”, the older brother yelled. But before the whining little boy uttered his uneasy response, the man fortuitously lost his control and so the little kid slipped from his hands and fell into the cold ground.
After that accident, the child lost his ability to walk due to the severe fracture in his lower extremities. The doctor even noted that surviving from that catastrophic event was a huge miracle.
Devastated by his own actions, the young man sat beside her sleeping brother and kissed him on his forehead. He whispered his words of regret while tears ceaselessly rolled on his cheeks. The following day, he committed suicide.
Hope that this story will remind us that material things can only give us temporary pleasure.At the end of the day, what matters most is the well-being of those people around us.
Another thing, when you are angry, do not let your anger lead you into sin. Sometimes, we say and do heartless things when we are too consumed by it. And the worst thing is, we can not take back those words and actions once said and done.
