The Duck & The Devil

The Duck & The Devil
       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
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
      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
      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 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, cheating, debt, fear, bad
      Habits, hatred, anger, 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. Share This with a friend and always remember:
      God is at the window.
