Sermon: "Forgive Your Enemies"


Mar 23, 2004
Sunday's sermon was "Forgive Your Enemies." Toward the
end of the

service the minister asked, "How many of you have
forgiven your enemies?"

80% held up their hands.

The minister then repeated his question. All responded
this time except
one small, elderly lady. "Mrs. Jones, are you not
willing to forgive your enemies?"

"I don't have any," she replied, smiling sweetly.
"Mrs. Jones, that is very unusual. How old are you?"
> "Ninety-eight," she replied.

"Oh Mrs. Jones, 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....

"I outlived the bitches."
