|The Sin Of Presumption!!! A Must Read For All by nchewi(m): 9:31pm On May 24, 2012|
A woman owned a dog. This dog was so faithful that d woman could leave her baby with it & go out to attend other matters.
■ She always returned to find d child soundly asleep with d dog faithfully watching over him..
■ One day something tragic happened.
■ The woman as usual, left d baby in d "hands" of this faithful dog & went out shopping.
■ When she returned, she discovered rather a nasty scene, there was a total mess.
■ The baby's cot was dismantled; his nappies & clothes torn to shreds with bloodstains all over d bedroom where she left the child & d dog.
■ Shocked, the woman wailed as she began looking for the baby.
■ Presently, she saw the faithful dog emerging from under d bed.
■ It was covered with blood and licking its mouth as it had just finished a delicious meal.
■ The woman went berserk & assumed that d dog had devoured her baby.
■ Without much thought she clubbed d dog to death.
■ But as she continued searching for d "remains" of her child, she beheld another scene.
■ Close 2 d bed was the baby who, although lying on bare floor, was safe. & under the bed the carcass of a jackal torn to pieces in what must have been a fierce battle between it & d dog which was now dead.
■ Then reality hit d woman who now began to understand what took place in her absence.
■ dog fought to protect the baby from the ravenous jackal.
■ It was too late for her now to make amends because in her impatience and anger, she had killed the faithful dog.
■ A dog deserving praise & adoration,that fought to save d life of her dear beloved child received death in return
■ Hw often have we misjudged people & torn them to shreds with harsh words and deeds before we have had time to evaluate d situation?
■ It is called SIN OF PRESUMPTION
■ Presuming things our way without taking d trouble to find out exactly what d situation really is. A little patience can drastically reduce major lifelong mistakes.
