Sunday Inspiration

When I read this I knew this was too valuable to not share with all of you…

The Duck

There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on
their farm. And he was given a slingshot to play with
out in the woods. He practiced in the woods but he
could never hit the target. And getting a little
discouraged; he headed back to dinner.
As he was walking back he saw Grandma’s pet duck. Just
out of impulse, he let it fly, hit the duck square in the
head, and killed it. He was shocked and grieved.
In a panic, he hid the dead duck in the wood pile,
only to see his sister watching. Sally had seen it
all, but she said nothing.
After lunch that day grandma said, “Sally, let’s wash
the dishes.” But Sally said, “Grandma, Johnny told me
he wanted to help in the kitchen today, didn’t you
Johnny?” And then she whispered to him, “Remember, the
duck?”
So Johnny did the dishes.
Later, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go
fishing, and Grandma said, “I’m sorry but I need Sally
to help make supper.” But Sally smiled and said,
“Well, that’s all right, because Johnny told me he
wanted to help.” And she whispered again, “Remember,
the duck?”
So Sally went fishing and Johnny stayed.
After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and
Sally’s, he finally couldn’t stand it any longer. He
came to Grandma and confessed that he killed the duck.
She knelt down, gave him a hug, and said, “Sweetheart,
I know. You see, I was standing at the window and I
saw the whole thing. But because I love you, I forgave
you.
But I was just wondering how long you would let Sally
make a slave of you.”
I don’t know what’s in your past. I don’t know what one sin the enemy keeps throwing up
in your face. But whatever it is, I want you to know
something.
The Lord Jesus Christ was standing at the window. And He
saw the whole thing. But because He loves you, He has
forgiven you. Perhaps He’s wondering how long you’ll
let the enemy make a slave out of you. The great thing
about God is that He not only forgives, but He
forgets.
