The Glass with a Hole

In a small village, there lived a short-tempered boy. He talked back to his parents and said some awful words toward them.

One day, when the boy is sleeping on the couch, he dreamed of all his friends and family. They are all sitting and having a good time in the dining area while waiting for him.

When he arrived, he hurriedly sits in between his mother and father. His mother gave him delicious food, and his father gave him a glass and poured it with juice.

But, the glass has a hole, so the juice got wasted. The boy got mad and said awful words to his father. But, his father smiled and tapped his shoulder. The boy suddenly calmed down and sat on the chair. Then, the father said:

“Son, when I poured the juice in your glass with a hole, what happened to the juice?”

It got wasted, father.

That’s correct. Saying terrible things to people may hurt their feelings. What you pour in matters, and when you tell awful words, you would leave a tangle in their hearts. No matter what, even you say sorry for countless times, the scar is still there.”

Then, the boy woke up from his dream. A tear streamed down his cheeks, and he hurriedly stood up and went to his parents. He said sorry and hugged them tightly.

Moral of the story: Be careful what you pour in because what goes out in your mouth may leave a wound in someone’s heart.
