Topic:- Beautiful Letter Written By A Father To His Son And Daughter

Following is a letter to his daughter from a renowned Hong Kong TV broadcaster and Child Psychologist.

The words are actually applicable to all of us, young or old, children or parents!

This applies to all sons and daughters too.

All parents can use this in their teachings to their children.

Dear Children, I am writing this to you because of 3 reasons:

1. Life, fortune, and mishaps are unpredictable, nobody knows how long he lives.

2. I am your father, and if I don’t tell you these, no one else will.

3. Whatever is written is my own personal bitter experiences that perhaps could save you a lot of unnecessary heartaches.

Remember the following as you go through life.

1. Do not bear a grudge toward those who are not good to you.

No one has the responsibility of treating you well, except your mother and I.

To those who are good to you, you have to treasure it and be thankful.

Also, you have to be cautious, because, everyone has a motive for every move.

When a person is good to you, it does not mean he really will be good to you.

You have to be careful, don’t hastily regard him as a real friend.

2. No one is indispensable, nothing is in the world that you must possess.

Once you understand this idea, it would be easier for you to go through life.

When people around you don’t want you anymore, or when you lose what you wanted the most.

3. Life is short. When you waste your life today, tomorrow you would find that life is leaving you.

The earlier you treasure your life, the better you enjoy life.

4. Love is nothing but a transient feeling, and this feeling would fade with time and with one’s mood.

If your so-called loved one leaves you, be patient, time will wash away your aches and sadness.

Don’t over exaggerate the beauty and sweetness of love, and don’t over exaggerate the sadness of falling out of love.

5. A lot of successful people did not receive a good education.

That does not mean that you can be successful by not studying hard.

Whatever knowledge you gain is your weapon in life.

One can go from rags to riches, but one has to start from some rags!

6. I do not expect you to financially support me when I am old, neither would I financially support your whole life.

My responsibility as a supporter ends when you are grown up.

After that, you decide whether you want to travel by public transport or in your Limousine, whether rich or poor.

7. You honour your words but don’t expect others to be so.

You can be good to people, but don’t expect people to be good to you.

If you don’t understand this, you would end up with unnecessary trouble.

8. I have bought lotteries for umpteen years, but could never strike any prize.

That shows if you want to be rich, you have to work hard! There is no free lunch!

9. No matter how much time I have with you, let’s treasure the time we have together.

We do not know if we would meet again in our next life.

10. Your Parents X Y Z. Read it twice. Ask your son and daughter to read it thrice.

Prayer Point:-
Oh Lord God, help me to understand the way of life and thereby walk on it henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
