Do u hate someone???

"When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you."

A kindergarten teacher has decided to let her class play a game. The teacher
told each child in the class to bring along a plastic bag containing a few
potatoes. Each potato will be given a name of a person that the child hates,
so the number of potatoes that a child will put in his/her plastic bag will
depend on the number of people he/she hates.

So when the day came, every child brought some potatoes with the name of the
people he/she hated. Some had 2 potatoes; some 3 while some up to 5
potatoes. The teacher then told the children to carry with them the potatoes
in the plastic bag wherever they go (even to the toilet) for 1 week.

Days after days passed by, and the children started to complain due to the
unpleasant smell let out by the rotten potatoes. Besides, those having 5
potatoes also had to carry heavier bags. After 1 week, the children were
relieved because the game had finally ended....

The teacher asked: "How did you feel while carrying the potatoes with you
for 1 week?". The children let out their frustrations and started
complaining of the trouble that they had to go through having to carry the
heavy and smelly potatoes wherever they go.

Then the teacher told them the hidden meaning behind the game. The teacher
said: "This is exactly the situation when you carry your hatred for somebody
inside your heart. The stench of hatred will contaminate your heart and you
will carry it with you wherever you go. If you cannot tolerate the smell of
rotten potatoes for just 1 week, can you imagine what is it like to have the
stench of hatred in your heart for your lifetime???"

**Moral of the story:* Throw away any hatred for anyone from your heart so
that you will not carry sins for a lifetime. Forgiving others is the best
attitude to take!
