The preacher’s Sunday sermon was, “Forgive Your Enemies”. He asked, “How many have forgiven their enemies?”
About half held up their hands.
He then asked, “How many of you know that you’re supposed to forgive them?”
Now about 80% held up their hands.
He then asked, “Now how many of you are going to make it a point to go out and forgive your enemies?”
All responded, except one elderly lady.
“Mrs. Jones, are you not willing to forgive you enemies?”
“I don’t have any.”
“Mrs. Jones, that is very unusual. How old are you?”
“Ninety three.” she replied.
“Mrs. Jones, please come down in front and tell the congregation how a person cannot have an enemy in the world.”
The little sweetheart of a lady tottered down the aisle, turned, and said: “It’s quite easy really. I just outlived those bitches!”
