There was a little boy and his sister that were visiting their
grandparents on their farm. Both Grandparents enjoyed them
coming every Summer.
One day the boy was given a slingshot to play with.
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, but only

Johnny told me he wanted to help."
She whispered again, "Remember the duck?" So Sally went

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."
Does anyone want to be a Slave? Certainly not!
Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done, and the
devil keeps throwing it up in your face. It could be about lying,
cheating, debt, fear, bad habits, hatred, anger, or bitterness.
It does not matter. 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 it would take for you to confess what you have done.
We are all God's "little boy's", and we all need to do what
May God Bless your Day!
