INSANITY…..

INSANITY…..

insanity

Hello peeps, how was the weekend? I already had an article to post this morning but someone sent this to me and I thought to share it with you. It’s a touching story that shows what happens a lot in our world these days. Emotions are so powerful, they can build or destroy. Misplaced priorities can have brutal repercussions. Read on:

While a man was polishing his new car, His 4 year old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the car; in anger, the man took the child’s hand and hit it many times not realizing he was using an iron.

At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fracture. When the child saw his father……………with painful eyes he asked, Dad when will my fingers grow back?

Davastated By His own Actions…………………. The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times, sitting in front of that car, he looked at the Scratches, The child had written “LOVE YOU DAD.”

The next day, the man committed suicide……………………

Anger and Love have no limits. 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.

When we don’t manage our emotions, they will ultimately destroy. I’ve heard a few people boast about their abilities to throw a temper tantrum and “do craze”. If you don’t manage that flaw, it will destroy you. The true sign of maturity is to be able to control our actions even when they’re justified. We must master our emotions.

That car that nobody else can touch is not as important as the life and well being of a loved one who can never be replaced. As soon as anything is bought, the value starts depreciating; but our relationships when we invest in them, should get stronger and more invaluable.

Do you feel used? Are you a product of physical, verbal or sexual abuse? You need to embrace God’s healing and get your life and self esteem back. A person who has self worth is the only one who can give love. Talk to someone who can help you come out of the experience. Deal with it, and preserve your future.

This week, make the decision to think before you act. Funny as it may sound, when we don’t think before we act, it’s equal to insanity…..

Have a great week!

    Touching story…….Our relationships are more important in life than material things.

    Only if you could take a look closer, we will see that all that gets us angry comes just to give us a moment of insanity that will lead to something negative…

    That is why you see some people getting angry over less important things…We had better take a moment of selah (pause and calmly think of the situation) before acting..We cannot achieve this if we do not make love a priority in our life.

    Love makes us to think well before acting…Love covers all wrongs

    Great piece again!!!

    Thank You

    interesting post!
    Just that the human emotion is a very complex issue.
    People are results of all sorts of past stories and abuse, and it not easy like that to say people should just embrace healing and get back thier lives ( that is not making excuses o), just that I’ve seen how people have been messed up by other people all through thier formative years. People need a lot of help. It really takes a lot to break free from our past

    I like that part that we should think before we act

  5. Lord have mercy. What on earth could be the man’s excuse. Cost of the car, Loan repayment?

    Love poeple and not things…..a great truth to ponder on.

    Dont stop this crusade

    @All, thanks so much for your comments.

    @Funke, i understand perfectly that people have passed through a lot of abuse; infact, statistics say that 1 out of every 4 girls was not abused at a young age, so, it’s an issue. But the truth is that healing is what can make us live beyond the past that has left a big scar, and that comes only from God. I counsel cases of abuse almost every other week. It’s real, it’s happening. But it’s past, and if we want to move on and not remain victims, we must undergo a process of healing. Note that i said, talk to someone who you look up to that can help you through the process. It’s not easy, but help is available….

    Hmm!

    A wise fellow once counselled, “always act better than you feel”.

    Cheers!

    I learnt a long time ago, 3 major ways people deal with anger and other kinds of emotions – pretend it’s not there or running away, displaying it without caution and then dealing with it appropriately. But more recetly I’ve learnt that taking just one or two minutes to respond helps with dealing with it. And most of all, His grace is available and sufficient.
