Bad Temper

Bad Temper

Contoll Your Anger Contoll Your Anger

There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.



The first day, the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.


Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.


The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.


When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry the wound is still there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

May my words and my thoughts be acceptable to you

Motivational stories

A little boy was in the habit of using abusive words. His mother wanted to change his habit. She brought a hammer and a box of nails to the boy’s room and told him that she would hammer a nail to the door of his room every time he used an abusive word. The nailing continued everyday. Seeing the growing ugly sign on the freshly painted door, he gradually began to behave in a better manner. Later he stopped his bad habit altogether and proudly reported his decision to the mother. To encourage him, she told him, “Now, at the end of every day you complete without uttering even a single bad word, we will pull out one nail from the door.” 


Gradually, all the nails were pulled out and the boy was delighted to display the door to his mother. Then the mother showed him the holes left in the door. She said, “Words are sharper than swords. Whenever you say an abusive word to another person, it leaves a scar in his mind and another one in your own mind like the nail-marks left in your door. It is better to avoid using bad words than repenting after repeating them.” 



He understood her advice and followed it faithfully. 


“Do not use harmful words, but only helpful words, the kind that build up and provide what is needed, so that what you say will do good to those who hear you” {Ephesians 4:29}.


“No insults or obscene talk must ever come from your lips” {Colossians 3:8}. 


St. James advises, “Every one must be quick to listen, but slow to speak and slow to become angry” {James 1: 19}. “Just think how large a forest can be set on fire by a tiny flame! And the tongue is like a fire” {James 3: 5, 6}. 


“May my words and my thoughts be acceptable to you, O Lord, my refuge and my redeemer! {Psalms 19: 14}.

The Island of Feelings

The Island of Feelings

Island of Feelings

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge and all of the others, including Love...

One day, it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all repaired their boats and left. 

Love was the only one who stayed. 

Love wanted to persevere until the last possible moment. 

When the island was almost sinking, Love decided to ask for help. 

Richness was passing by Love in a great boat. 

Love said: "Richness, can you take me with you?" 

Richness answered: "No, I can't. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you." 

Love decided to ask Vanity, who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel: "Vanity, please help me!"' 

"I can't help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat," Vanity answered. 

Sadness was close by, so Love asked for help: "Sadness, let me go with you." 

"Oh...Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!" 

Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her! Suddenly, there was a voice: "Come Love, I will take you." It was an elder. 

Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that he even forgot to ask the elder her name. 

When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. 

Love realizing how much he owed the elder asked Knowledge, another elder: 

"Who helped me?" 

"It was Time," Knowledge answered. 

"Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?" 

Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered: "Because only Time is capable of understanding how great Love is."
