The Story of Soul

   There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm. 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
   the slingshot 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 woodpile, only to see his
   sister watching. Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing. After
   that day Grandma said, "Sally, let's wash the dishes."
   But Sally said, "Grandma, Johnny told me he wanted to help in the
   kitchen." Then she whispered to him, "remember the duck?"
   So Johnny did the dishes. Later that day, 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 just smiled and said, "Well, that's all right because Johnny
   told me he wanted to help." She whispered again, "remember the duck?"
   So Sally went fishing and Johnny stayed to help.
   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 had killed the duck. Grandma 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.
   I was just wondering how long you would let Sally make a slave of
   Thought for the day: whatever is in your past, whatever you have done
   and the enemy keeps throwing it up in your face (lying, debt, fear,
   hatred, anger, unforgiveness, bitterness, etc.) what ever it is, you
   need to know that God was standing at the window and He saw the whole
   thing. He wants you to know that He loves you and that you are
   forgiven. He's just wondering how long you will let the enemy make a
   slave of you. Inc
