Thought for the Day
There was this man who saw a scorpion floundering around in the water. He decided to save it by stretching out his finger, but the scorpion stung him. The man still tried to get the scorpion out of the water, but the scorpion stung him again. Another man nearby told him to stop saving the scorpion that kept stinging him. But the man said, "It is the nature of the scorpion to sting. It is my nature to love. Why should I give up my nature to love just because it is the nature of the scorpion to sting?"
Don’t give up loving. Don’t give up your goodness even if the people around you sting you. The greatness comes not when things are always going well for you. But the greatness comes when you’re really tested, when you take some knocks, some disappointments, when sadness comes… Because only if you’ve been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.
