NAIL IN THE FENCE

NAIL  IN  THE  FENCE  
 


 

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 young 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.
