A kindergarten teacher has decided to let her class play a game. The

teacher told each child in the class to bring along a plastic bag

containing a few potatoes. Each potato will be given a name of a person

that the child hates, so the number of potatoes that a child will put
in

his/her plastic bag will depend on the number of people he/she hates.


So when the day came, every child brought some potatoes with the name
of

the people he/she hated. Some had 2 potatoes; some 3 while some up to 5
potatoes.

The teacher then told the children to carry with them the potatoes in
the plastic bag wherever they go for 1 week.

Days after days passed by, and the children started to complain due to

the unpleasant smell let out by the rotten potatoes. Besides, those

having 5 potatoes also had to carry heavier bags.


After 1 week , the children were relieved because the game had finally
ended.

The teacher asked: "How did you feel while carrying the potatoes with

you for 1 week?" The children let out their frustrations and started

complaining of the trouble that they had to go through having to carry

the heavy and smelly potatoes wherever they go.

Then the teacher told them the hidden meaning behind the game.

The teacher said: "This is exactly the situation when you carry your

hatred for somebody inside your heart. The stench of hatred will

contaminate your heart and you will carry it with you wherever you go.

If you cannot tolerate the smell of rotten potatoes for just 1 week,

can

you imagine what is it like to have the stench of hatred in your heart

for your lifetime???"


Moral of the story:
Throw away any hatred for anyone from your heart so that you will not

carry sins for a life time. Forgiving others is the best attitude to

take!

Life is to be fortified by many friendships.
To love & to be loved is the greatest happiness.

Fate determines who comes into our lives. The heart determines who
stays.
