..."The Devil and the Duck"...

The Devil and the Duck

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. Getting a little discouraged, he headed back for 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 wood
pile, only to see his sister watching! Sally had seen it all, but she
said nothing.


After lunch the next 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." 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 the 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 you."


Thought for the day and every day thereafter:

Whatever
is in your past, whatever you have done -- and the devil keeps throwing
it up in your face (lying, debt, fear, hatred, anger, not forgiving,
bitterness, etc.) whatever it is, you need to know that God was
standing at the window and He saw the whole thing, He has seen your
whole life.


He wants you to know that He loves you and that you
are forgiven. He's just wondering how long you will let the devil make
a slave of you.


The great thing about God is that when you ask
for forgiveness, He not only forgives you, but He forgets - It is by
God's Grace and Mercy that we are saved. Go ahead and make the
difference in someone's life today. . . remember ... God is at the
window!...
