Forgiveness

The preacher, in his Sunday sermon, used “Forgive Your Enemies” as his subject

After a long sermon, he asked how many were willing to forgive their enemies.

About half held up their hands

Not satisfied he harangued for another twenty minutes and repeated his question

This time he received a response of about 80 percent.

Still unsatisfied, he lectured for another 15 minutes and repeated his question

With all thoughts now on Sunday dinner, all responded except one elderly lady in the rear.

“Mrs

Jones, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?”

“I don’t have any.”

“Mrs

Jones, that is very unusual

How old are you?”

“Ninety three.”

“Mrs

Jones, please come down in front and tell the congregation how a person can live to be ninety-three, and not have an enemy in the world.”

The little sweetheart of a lady tottered down the aisle, very slowly turned around and said: “It’s easy, I just outlived the bitches.”
