Two friends were walking through the desert. At one point, they had an argument … one friend slapped the other in the face. The one who got slapped was, of course, hurt, but without saying anything wrote in the sand, “Today my best friend slapped me in the face.”
They kept on walking together when they came upon an oasis. They decided to take a bath in the refreshing water. The one who had been slapped in the face got stuck between the rocks and began drowning. The friend came over and saved him. After recovering, he carved on a stone, “Today my best friend saved my life.”
The other asked, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand, but now, you write on a stone. Why?”
The friend replied, “When someone hurts us, we should write it in the sand so that the winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But when someone does something good for us, we should engrave it in stone, so that no wind can ever erase it.”
