Other - Forgive Your Enemies
The preacher, in his Sunday sermon, used "Forgive Your Enemies" as his subject of the day. After a lengthy presentation, he asked how many were willing to forgive their enemies.
About half held up their hands.
Not satisfied, he harangued on for another twenty minutes and repeated his question. This time he received a response of about 80 percent having the capability to forgive.
Still unsatisfied with the congregation's response, he lectured for another 15 minutes and repeated his question.
With all thoughts now, on Sunday dinner, all those in attendance responded with their ability to forgive, 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?"
"Mrs. Jones, would you please come down 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 to face the congregation around and said: "It's easy, really. ... I just outlived the bitches."
