Dont point fingers

A man asked his father-in-law, "Many people praised you for a successful marriage. Could you please share with me your secret?"

The father-in-law answered in a smile, "Never criticize your wife for her shortcomings or when she does something wrong. Always bear in mind that because of her shortcomings and weaknesses, she could not find a better husband than you."

We all look forward to being loved and respected. Many people are afraid of losing face.

Generally, when a person makes a mistake, he would look around to find a scapegoat to point the finger at. This is the start of a war.

We should always remember that when we point one finger at a person, the other four fingers are pointing at ourselves.

If we forgive the others, others will ignore our mistake too. Or at the least, will learn how to forgive our mistakes as well.

To err is human, to forgive is divine!

Hello Hari uncle, what you stated in this passage is very very true and I feel it should be something all of us need to think of before we decide to throw someone else under the bus...
