THE TRUTH WILL SET U FREE!
Refuse to be blackmailed!!!
I saw this in my archive. This isone of the stories I use in teaching people especially children to be truthful and not give the devil the opportunity to mess them up.
Do you know that these 3know the truth about you; God, the devil and yourself. God loves you and wants you to live right. The devil hates you and wants you to be in bondage.You have a choice to make,love yourself, choose right and live right for God, to the shame of the devil.
The Duck & the Devil
A little boy was 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 home 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 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 everyday hereafter . . .Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done and the devil keeps throwing it up in your face. . .. (lying, cheating, adultery,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 talk to God, ask for His forgiveness and the grace not to go back to your old ways. God help us all.
