Enemies are Tomatoes

Once, a teacher asked her students to bring some tomatoes in a plastic bag to school. Each tomato will be given a name of the person whom that child hates. Like this, the number of tomatoes will be equal to the number of persons they hate.
On a decided day, the children brought their tomatoes well addressed. Some had two, some had three and some had even five tomatoes .
Teacher said they have to carry tomatoes with them everywhere they go for a week.
As the days passed the children started to complain about the spoiled smell of tomatoes. Students who had many tomatoes complained it was very heavy to carry.
Teacher asked, “How did you feel this one week?”
Children complained of smell & heavy weight of the tomatoes .
Teacher said, “This is very similar to what you carry in heart when you don’t like some people. Hatred makes heart unhealthy and you carry that hatred everywhere.
If you can’t bear the smell of spoiled tomatoes for a week, imagine the impact on your heart that you carry throughout life.”
Heart is a beautiful garden that needs regular cleaning of unwanted weeds.
Forgive those who have angered you.
This makes room for storing good things..
Have a blessed life…
This is one of the best teacher’s method of explaining the realities of life!
