Being rich is not about how much you have, but its about how much you can give to others. This quote on this inspiring Singaporean short film drama moved me and let me ponder, digging into the depths of my core values, beliefs and principles in life.
The scenario in this film depicts a concrete example of a hardworking father who kept himself busy for work in order to provide a good life to his son. Due to his preoccupations to find a living, he was not able to spend time bonding with his son and show affection as well. He was misunderstood by his son when his love language was primarily that of service.
On the part of the son, he represents a number of children in our generation who seem to overlook showing love, care and appreciation to their parents. Those who felt ashamed of their parents because they are poor and less educated.
Let us not live life with regrets on the chances that we didn't take. Remember that life is too short, so we better do stuffs that matters. And that is to live, to love and to leave a legacy.
Let us not forget God's promise to us that when we honor our parents, He will grant us a long, full life in our stay here in this world.
