72.Jack and Jill


Jack and Jill always went to their Granny’s house for summer vacation. This year too they arrived excitedly at granny’s place. They were assigned their duties. Jack was to sweep the house and Jill was to wash the dishes. Granny had a big garden and lot  of space to run and play. Besides she had ducks, hens, turkeys and a dog which was great fun for the children.

One day as Jack and Jill were playing, Jack threw a stone playfully at a duck. The stone hit the duck on the head and it fell down dead. Jack was very scared. He quickly dug a pit and buried the duck. Evening when granny counted the ducks, one was missing but its whereabout was not known. She thought it was stolen.

The next day Jack swept the house while Jill was loitering. “Why are you not doing your work?” asked Jack. “Today you will wash the dishes, sir,” said Jill mischievously. “Why? It’s your job,” retorted Jack. “Then I’ll tell about the duck to granny,” laughed Jill. “Oh, no please. I’ll do the dishes,” said Jack and proceeded to wash the dishes after sweeping the floor. The next day the same trick was played by Jill. More than the humiliation Jack could not tolerate Jill’s taunts. One week went by. Jack was at breaking point. “Why don’t I go and confess the whole thing to granny?”  thought Jack. He was afraid but he mustered courage and walked over to granny’s room. Amidst sobs and sniffles he coughed out the story of how the duck died and how he had buried the dead duck. “I’m sorry grandma, I’m very sorry, please forgive me,” he  blurted out.

Grandma hugged him and said, “You should have brought the duck to me. I would have fried it for you. Now, don’t worry. Go and play.” Jill called, “Jack, where are you?” “I’m here,” responded Jack. “Come,” she said, “finish your work.” “That’s not my work; that’s your work,” said Jack gleefully. “What? You want me to go and tell granny?” “Go,” said Jack, “go and tell, who cares?” Now, Jill knew what had happened. She could no more take advantage of him.

When we do something that God doesn’t like, immediately we must confess it to God and get cleansed by the blood of Jesus. Then satan cannot take advantage of us. Our guilty conscience will be cleansed by the blood of Jesus.
