Human Interest Story – brings a tear…
It was toward the end of Sunday service and our Minister asked, “How many of you have forgiven your enemies?” Eighty percent held up their hands. The Minister then repeated his question, all responded this time except one very elderly lady.
“Bea? Are you not willing to forgive your enemies?" and she replied with a sweet smile “I don't have any.”
"Well Bea, that is certainly very unusual and should be commended, how old are you?”
“Ninety-eight.” she replied. Amazed the Minister said “Would you please come down in front and tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years and not have an enemy in the world?”
The little sweetheart of a lady tottered down the aisle, faced the congregation, and said,“It's simple really, I just outlived the bitches.”
