POTATO

Potatoes
Food for Our Thought.


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 (even to the toilet) 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 lifetime. Forgiving
others is the best attitude to take! Love others even
if you don't like them...

Do You Believe
There was this Christian lady that had to do a lot of traveling for her business, so she did a lot of flying. Flying made her nervous, so she always took her Bible along with her to read and it helped relax her.
One time, she was sitting next to a man. When he saw her pull out her Bible, he gave a little chuckle and went back to what he was doing.
After awhile, he turned to her and asked, “You don’t really believe all that stuff in there do you?”
The lady replied, “Of course I do. It is the Bible.”
He said, “Well, what about that guy that was swallowed by that whale?”
She replied, “Oh, Jonah. Yes, I believe that, it is in the Bible.”
He asked, “Well, how do you suppose he survived all that time inside the whale?”
The lady said, “Well, I don’t really know. I guess when I get to heaven, I will ask him.”
“What if he isn’t in heaven?” the man asked sarcastically.
“Then you can ask him.” replied the lady.
