Forgive Your Enemies
In his Sunday sermon, the minister used
“Forgive Your Enemies” as his subject.
After the sermon, he asked how many were willing to forgive their
enemies. About half held up their hands.
Not satisfied, he harangued the congregation for another twenty
minutes and repeated his question. This
received a response of eighty percent.
Still unsatisfied, he lectured for fifteen more minutes and
repeated his question. All
responded except one elderly gentleman in the rear.
”Mr. Jones, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?”
“I don’t have any.”
”Mr. Jones, that is very unusual. How old are you?”
”Mr. Jones, please come down in front and tell the
congregation how a man can live to be ninety-three and not have an enemy
in the world.”
The old man teetered down the aisle, slowly turned to
face the congregation, and said, “I outlived the sons of bitches!”
