A nervous taxpayer was unhappily conversing with the IRS auditor who had come to review his records.
At one point the auditor exclaimed, “We feel it is a great privilege to be allowed to live and work in the USA. As a citizen you have an obligation to pay taxes, and we expect you to eagerly pay them with a smile.”
“Thank goodness,” replied the taxpayer. “I thought you were going to want cash.”
It sure was a lot easier to get older than it was to get wiser.
Thought for the day
“One person dies in full vigor, completely secure and at ease . . . Another dies in bitterness of soul, never having enjoyed anything good” Job 21:23, 25 NIV
You have a choice. You can hold on to unforgiveness and bitterness, or you can experience the life God is calling you to live.You can’t have both.
You may think the person who hurt you doesn’t deserve your forgiveness. You’re right—but you don’t deserve forgiveness, either.
