hogy az adottságainkat, készségeinket megéljük."

discovering Emerson again

"To laugh often and love much;
To win respect of intelligent people
And the affection of children;

(photo by Rabbi Yaakov Asher Sinclair)
To earn the approbation of honest critics
And endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To give one’s self;

To leave the world a little better,
Whether by a healthy child,
A garden patch,
Or redeemed social condition;
To have played and laughed with enthusiasm

(Tonya Crawford)
And sung with exultation;
To know even one life has breathed easier
Because you have lived…
This is to have succeeded."

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

He treats us

He treats people vs people treat people. Don't blame anyone else especially not God for treating. First of all, check yourself.
This is so simple that hurts.

Then Peter came to Jesus and asked,
"Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?"
Jesus answered,
"I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants.
As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand bags of gold was brought to him. Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt. At this the servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.
But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred silver coins. He grabbed him and began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded. His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay it back.’ But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt.
When the other servants saw what had happened, they were outraged and went and told their master everything that had happened.
Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’"
(Mt 18:21-33)
