When I confronted my daughter after she hurt another child with a mean comment, she cried and immediately wanted to apologize. That was a good thing, but I wanted her to know an apology can't always make things better.

I told her the parable of Will, a 9-year-old whose father abandoned his mom two years earlier. Will was angry, and he often lashed out at others with hurtful words. He once told his mom, "I see why Dad left you!"

Need-expansion dynamic

The more I focus on my needs, the more things in life get loaded into that category. The more I live with the meeting of my need as my central focus of concern, the more things in my life get defined as needs.
If you listen to the way we tend to toss around the word “need” you will soon realize how many things we have defined as needs are, in fact, not essential for life.

You probably don’t really “need” a good meal.
You probably don’t really “need” a raise.
You probably don’t really “need” that new house
You probably don’t really “need” the affection of that person.
You probably don’t really “need” that position you have aspired to.
You probably don’t really “need” the recognition of your peers.

Yet the more you focus on your own neediness, the more you desires will be christened as need.

All I Need to Know About Life I Learned From the Easter Bunny
Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Walk softly and carry a big chocolate bunny.
Everyone needs a friend who is all ears.
Don't count your chickens before they are hatched.
There's no such thing as too much candy.
All work and no play can make you a basket case.
A cute little tail always attracts a lot of attention.
Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.
Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day.
Some body parts should be floppy.
Keep your paws off other people's jellybeans.
Good things come in small sugar-coated packages.
The grass is always greener in someone else's basket.
An Easter bonnet can tame even the wildest hare.
To show your true colors you have to come out of your shell.
The best things in life are sweet and gooey and come in assorted colors.
Get rid of all your black jellybeans.

My dear friends

If someone wrote the history of your life, what would be the one thing they would say you lived for? Success, power, family, comfort, pleasure, possessions, acceptance, or appearance?

Desire for a good thing becomes a bad thing when that desire becomes a ruling thing.

Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry.

Sowing the Seed

種を蒔く人は時としてそれほど回りから認識されないことがありますが、それはいずれかの形で必ず報われる時がくるという話です。それが必ずしも生前でないかもしれませんが、それはそれで一つの美学かもしれません。

One of William Barclay's friends tells this story: In the church where he worshiped there was a lonely old man, Old Thomas. He had outlived all his friends and hardly anyone knew him. When Thomas died, this friend had the feeling that there would be no one to go to the funeral, so he decided to go so that there might be someone to follow the old man to his last resting-place.
