The Faithful Cat

6

One day something tragic happened. The woman, as usual, left the baby in the “hands” of this faithful cat and went out shopping. When she returned, she saw a rather nasty scene. The baby’s cot was dismantled; his nappies and clothes torn to shreds with bloodstains all over the bedroom where she left the child and the cat. Shocked, the woman wailed as she began looking for her baby. All of a sudden, she saw the faithful cat emerging from under the bed. It was covered with blood and licking its mouth as if it had just finished a delicious meal. The woman went berserk and assumed that the cat had devoured her baby. Without much thought, she beat the cat to death with wood. But as she continued searching for the remains of her child, she beheld another scene. Close to the bed was the baby, who although lying bare on the floor, was safe; and under the bed the body of a snake torn to pieces in what must have been a fierce battle between it and the cat, which was now dead. Then reality dawned on the woman who now began to understand what took place in her absence. The cat fought to protect her baby from the snake. It was too late for her now to make amends because in her impatience and anger, she had killed the faithful cat. How often have we misjudged people and torn them to shreds with harsh words and deeds before we have had time to evaluate the situation? It is called the sin of presumption. Presuming things our way without taking the trouble to find out exactly what the situation really is. Little patience can drastically reduce major life mistakes. Who Are you misjudging right now? Don’t think what you think others are thinking. Take time to get the whole truth. Be patient with people, lest you live to regret your actions against them. Be quick to hear, but slow to respond and become angry. — Author Unknown Meditation: He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. – Proverbs 16:32 You will succeed in Jesus Name!
