If I had a chance to ask God a question, I would ask Him, “As a parent, what are some of the lessons, you would want me to teach my children. God would reply with a smile and say: “To learn they cannot make anyone love them. What they can do is let themselves be loved.” “To learn that what is most valuable is not what they have in their lives, but who they have in their lives.” “To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others. All will be judged individually on their own merits, not as a group on a comparison basis.” “To learn that a rich person is not the one who has the most, but is the one who needs the least.” “To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in persons we love and that it takes many years to heal them.” “To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.” “To learn that there are persons who love them dearly, but simply do not know how to express or show their feeling.” To learn that money can buy everything but happiness.” “To learn that two different people can look at the same thing and see it totally differently.” “To learn that a true friend is someone who knows everything about them and likes them anyway.” “To learn that it is not always enough that they be forgiven by others, but that they have to forgive themselves.”
