The duck and the devil

Subject: The duck and the devil
  There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their
  Farm. He was given a slingshot to play without 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
  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 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
  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.
