*1. Once upon a time I met a man who told me that telling the truth and making someone cry, is better than telling a lie and making someone smile and happy.*

*2. He said to me your true friends are those who will never avoid you just because they have met new friends.*

*3. As he kept on speaking to me, he said if some people do not appreciate and value my presence, I should work hard to make them value and appreciate my absence.*

*4. He said I must not be angry with anyone who is quiet on me because there must be a reason why they are quiet and that I will get to know the reason later.*

*5. He told me it is always better to be a blessing to others at all times than to be a burden at all times.*

*6. He said I must learn to forgive others not because they deserve it but because I deserve the peace that comes with forgiveness.*

*7. I must know that everyone deserves a second chance and many more chances if they ask for forgiveness but I must not lose my guard over their intentions.*

*8. I must not only talk to people in my free time but I must free my time to talk to people.*

*9. I must know that the truth may hurt for a little while, but a lie will hurt for a long time.*

*10. I must learn to value and respect people who tell me the truth no matter how painful the truth is.*

*11. I must make my decisions when I am in the right mood, not when I am angry, likewise I must not make promises when I am excited with high emotions.*

*12. I must know that some people are like candles that burn themselves to give light to others. I should not have regrets if I happen to be one of such candles.*

*13. I must learn to be a caring friend because it is a thousand times better than a careless lover.*

*14. I should value and protect my relationships of many years of investments because they are like a book that takes years to write but can get burnt only within few seconds.*

*15. He specifically said this repeatedly that If have a problem with someone, I should go tell the person and not go tell the world.*

*16. He said to me that I should know that nobody is too busy, it is just a matter of their priorities within a day.*

*17. He said to me that people can trust you when you are consistent with what you say and what you do.*

*18. He said with a low voice, only God can be totally trusted. Trust God 100%.*

*19. He then said no matter what, I must not forget those who helped and stood by me in my time of trials and during my difficult times.*

*20. I must always remember those who turned their backs on me in my difficult times of trials. Not for vengeance, but for the lesson of life.*

*21. I must be careful with those who put me into difficult times but I must never hate them. It is a lesson of life.*

*22. He said again I must be grateful at all times to God for this life and for living. It is a previlege, and not a right.*

*23. As he was leaving me, he said, always remember how temporary this world is, I must always be conscious of the reality of eternity in God’s Kingdom or everlasting destruction.*

*24. He smiled and left waving at me for a long time. Who must this man be?*

*25. What he told me may be useful to you. If it is, then share it.*

*God bless you more as you meditate upon these words.*
