The Lesson behind Tomatoes …

๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ… _*Tomatoes !!!*_ ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…

๐Ÿ…A teacher asked her students to bring some tomatoes in a plastic bag to school.

๐Ÿ…Each tomato was to be given the name of a person whom that child hates.

๐Ÿ…So, the number of tomatoes would be equal to the number of persons they hate.

๐Ÿ…On a pre-determined day, All the children brought their tomatoes well addressed.

๐Ÿ…Some had two, some had three and some had five, some even had 20 tomatoes in accordance with the number of people they hated.

๐Ÿ…The teacher then told them they had to carry the tomatoes with them everywhere they go for two weeks.

๐Ÿ…As the days passed the children started to complain about the decay and smell of the tomatoes.

๐Ÿ…The students who had many tomatoes complained it was very heavy to carry and the smell was too much.

๐Ÿ…After a week, the teacher asked the students โ€œHow did you feel this week?โ€

๐Ÿ…The children complained of the awful smell and heavy weight of the tomatoes, especially those who carried several tomatoes.

๐Ÿ…The teacher said, โ€œThis is very similar to what you carry in your heart when you donโ€™t like some people.

๐Ÿ…Hatred makes the heart unhealthy and you carry that hatred everywhere.

๐Ÿ…If you canโ€™t bear the smell of spoilt tomatoes for a week, imagine the impact of bitterness on your heart as you carry it daily.โ€

๐Ÿ…The heart is a beautiful garden that needs regular cleaning of unwanted weeds.

๐Ÿ… Forgive those who have angered you.

๐Ÿ…This makes room for storing good things.

๐Ÿ… _*Get Better, Not Bitter!!!*_

AIthough you may not usually forward links but this makes sense. So forward it to someone or group. They might be motivated to let go and cleanse their hearts!!!!!

๐Ÿ… _*Love everyone*_ ๐Ÿ…
