The Snake and the Saw

The Snake and the Saw
Author Unknown

There was a snake that crawled over a sharp saw and was cut. In anger the snaked wrapped the saw with its thick body and proceeded to squeeze the life out of the saw.

With each angry squeeze it felt more pain but continued because it wasn’t going to let the saw get away with the pain it caused it. The snake, refusing to let go of the saw, eventually died; not knowing the whole time,  he needed to let go of the initial pain and focus on its future and where it was going. Instead, the snake, unfortunately,  lost its life and didn’t even see it coming.

Control your anger, forgive those that hurt you, and don’t give people or things power over you. It can ultimately kill you.

Reflection Question:  What do you do when you feel like your anger is getting out of control?
