The Tale of Forgiveness 

“Those Who Refuse To Forgive Burn The Bridge They Must Cross…

The Moment They Need Forgiveness…”

Two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey, they had an argument, and one friend slapped the
other in the face.

The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything,
wrote in the sand:

“Today my best friend slapped me in the face.”

They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to get cleaned up. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone:

“Today my best friend saved my life.”

The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him,

“After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?”

The other friend replied:

“When someone hurts us we should write it down in the sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.”

Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive.

Luke 17:4


Life Is So Short… We Don’t Have Enough Time To Hold Grudges… I Hope You Are Encouraged Today… I Love You And I’m Always Praying For You… See You At Church This Weekend.
