Let's take a look at this story:
A man came out of his home to admire his new car. To his puzzlement, his three-year-old son was happily hammering dents into the shiny paint of the car.
The man ran to his son, knocked him away, hammered the little boy's hands into pulp as punishment. When the father calmed down, he rushed his son to the hospital. Although the doctor tried desperately to save the crushed bones, he finally had to amputate the fingers from both the boy's hands.
When the boy woke up from the surgery and saw his bandaged stubs, he innocently said, "Daddy, I'm sorry about your car." Then he asked, "but when are my fingers going to grow back?" The father went home and committed suicide.

Think about this story the next time you see someone spill milk at a dinner table or steps on your feet and you wish to take revenge. Think first before you lose your patience with someone you love. Cars can be repaired. Broken bones and hurt feelings often can't. Too often we fail to recognize the difference between the person and the performance.
People make mistakes. We are allowed to make mistakes. But the actions we take while in a rage will haunt us forever. Pause and ponder. Think before you act. Be patient. Understand and love.
