The Devil & The Duck

Cerita ini saya dapat dari sebuah broadcast mail dan saya merasa cerita ini perlu di share untuk dapat menjadi inspirasi banyak orang.

There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm.
(ada seorang anak laki2 mengunjungi kakek nenek nya di pertaniannya.)

He was given a slingshot to play with out in the woods..
(dia diberikan senapan u/bermain diluar dengan kayu2)

He practiced in the woods; but he could never hit the target.
(dia berlatih menggunakan kayu, tapi dia engga bisa mengenai sasaran)

Getting a little discouraged, he headed back for dinner.
(dia putus asa, dan dia berbalik untuk mkn malam)

As he was walking back he saw Grandma’s pet duck.
(sewaktu dia sedang berjalan kebelakang, dia melihat bebek peliharaan nenek)

duck and boy

Just out of impulse, he let the slingshot fly, hit the duck square in the head and killed it. He was shocked and grieved!
(secara reflek, dia menggunakan katapel tsb dan memukul bebek tepat di kepala dan mati. dia sangat kaget dan tercengang)

In a panic, he hid the dead duck in the wood pile; only to see his watching! Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing.
(didlm kepanikan, dia menyembunyikan bangkai bebek di lubang kayu dan saudara perempuannya melihatnya! sally melihat semuanya, tapi dia tdk mengatakan apa2..)

After lunch the next day Grandma said, ‘Sally, let’s wash the dishes’
(setelah mkn siang, esoknya nenek berkata, Sally,tolong cucikan piring)

But Sally said, ‘Grandma, Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen.’
(tapi Sally berkata, nenek, jonny bilang dia ingin membantu di dapur)

Then she whispered to him, “Remember the duck?’
(kemudian dia berbisik kepadanya, inget bebek itu?)

So Johnny did the dishes.
(jadi, jonny yang mencuci piring)

Later that day, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing and Grandma said, ‘I’m sorry but I need Sally to help make supper.’
(hari berikutnya, kakek menyuruh apakah kalian mau memancing, dna nnek berkata, wah sayang sekali tapi Sally hrs membantuku membuat sarapan malam)

Sally just smiled and said, ‘well that’s all right because Johnny told me he wanted to help?
(sally hanya tersenyum, hm…tidak apa2 karena Jonny bilang akan membantu nenek)

She whispered again, ‘Remember the duck?’ So Sally went fishing and Johnny stayed to help.
(dia berbisik kembali, Inget bebek itu?? jadi Sally pergi memancing dan Johnny tinggal untuk membantu nenek)

After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally’s; hefinally couldn’t stand it any longer.
(stelah bbrp hari Johny dikerjain sally, akhirnya engga tahan lagi)

He came to Grandma and confessed that he had killed the duck.
(dia datang kepada nenek dan mengaku bhw dia telah membunuh bebek nya)

Grandma knelt down, gave him a hug and said, ‘Sweetheart, I know. You see, I was standing at the window and I saw the whole thing, but because I love you, I forgave you. I was just wondering how long you would let Sally make a slave of you.’
(nenek berlutut, dan memeluknya dan berkata, SAYANG, SAYA TAHU, KAMU TAU, SAYA SEDANG BERDIRI DKT JENDELA DAN SAYA MELIHAT SEMUANYA, TAPI KARENA SAYA MENGASIHI KAMU, SAYA MEMAAFKAN KAMU. SAYA BERHARAP BERAPA LAMA KAMU AKAN MEMBIARKAN SALLY MEMPERBUDAK KAMU)

Thought for the day and every day, thereafter:

Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done…..? And the devil keeps throwing it up in your face (lying, cheating, debt, fear, bad habits, hatred, anger, bitterness, etc.)…whatever it is….You need to know that:
God was standing at the window and He saw the whole thing..

(apapun yg terjadi di masa lalu, apapun yg kamu lakukan..iblis memperlihatkan kembali kepada kita, kebohongan, ketakutan, hutang, amarah,kepahitan, kebiasaan buruk dll..) apapun itu…kamu perlu tahu bahwa..

Tuhan sedang berada di jendela dan Dia melihat semuanya..)

He has seen your whole life… He wants you to know that He loves you and that you are forgiven. He’s just wondering how long you will let the devil make a slave of you.
(dia sedang melihat smua hidup kamu. dia ingin kamu mengetahui bhw dia mengasihimu dan kamu telah diampuni. Dia hanya berharap brp lama kamu akan membiarkan iblis memperbudak kamu)

The great thing about God is that when you ask for forgiveness;
(Hal yg terbesar ttg TUhan adl ketika kamu meminta pengampunan..)

He not only forgives you, but He forgets.
(Dia tdk hanya mengampuni kamu, tapi dia melupakan..)

It is by God’s grace and mercy that we are saved.
Go ahead and make the difference in someone’s life today.

Share this with a friend and always remember:
God is at the window!
