A couple invited a priest of their parish for dinner in their home. After the priest left, the woman said to her husband; " I think the priest has stolen the £50 that I kept on the table of which I had the intention to give him".
Angrily her husband exclaimed; " if they are not pedophile, they are thieves. There is no need to invite him again. We shall from henceforth be attending Mass in another parish".
Two months later, the woman met the priest in the street and was courageous enough to face him and said: " Good morning Father, you have surely realised that we no longer attend Mass in your parish. This is because we're very angry with you. The day you ate in our house, there was a £50 note on the table. It disappeared while we were eating. You were the only person who visited our house at that time".
The priest said to her, "yes, I took the money. I put it in the Bible to avoid spilling the sauce on it". The woman got so confused and asked the priest to forgive her.
Back in her house, she took up the Bible and found the £50 note which had been there for two months.
For two months, she had not opened her Bible to reflect on the word of God,
For two months she had her husband falsely accused the priest,
For two months, the incident had tortured them.
If you are reading this story now, and you are not at peace with yourself, for any reason whatsoever, ask yourself whether it's because you have not opened your Bible for a long time.
Forgive Others not minding how bad their sins against you may be. You may be at fault if the incident is looked at from another perspective. - Chidi Cali.
