Mr. Lee was terribly overweight, so his doctor put him on a diet.
“I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you’ll have lost at least 5 pounds.”
When Mr. Lee returned, he shocked the doctor by losing nearly 20 pounds.
“Why, that’s amazing!” the doctor said, “Did you follow my instructions?”
Mr. Lee nodded. “I’ll tell you though, I thought I was going to drop dead that 3rd day.”
“From hunger, you mean?” asked the doctor.
Replied Mr. Lee, “No, from skipping.”
I tried working in a wheel factory, but I got too tired.
Thought for the day
“Never avenge yourselves. Leave that to God, for he has said that he will repay those who deserve it” Romans 12:19a
The heart of real forgiveness is relinquishing your right to get even.
