From one fatherless child to another, thank you Ben Hooper.


Quote:
When I went into town with her [his mother], I could see people staring at me, making guesses as to who was my father. At school, the children said ugly things to me, and so I stayed to myself during recess, and I ate lunch alone.

One Sunday some people queued up in the aisle before I could get out, and I was stopped. Before I could make my way through the group, I felt a hand on my shoulder, a heavy hand. It was that minister. I cut my eyes around and caught a glimpse of his beard and his chin, and I knew who it was. I trembled in fear. He turned his face around so he could see mine and seemed to be staring for a little while. I knew what he was doing. He was going to make a guess as to who my father was.

A moment later he said, "Well, boy, you're a child of..." and he paused there. And I knew it was coming. I knew I would have my feelings hurt. I knew I would not go back again! He said, "Boy, you're a child of God. I see a striking resemblance, boy." Then he swatted me on the bottom and said, "Now, you go claim your inheritance." I left the building a different person. In fact, that was really the beginning of my life.

~Ben Hooper~ (Yes, it actually a true story)


In humility,
Merin

Very nice. It reminds me of the story of the prodigal son. The master of the house loved his sons and daughters. No matter what. His kids always had a place to stay and someone who would celebrate their return. Whenever they wanted to come back home.

I always thought it was just something made up. I had no idea till few days ago that it was all true.

Made up or true that is a very heartwarming story. Thanks Master Merin for bringing it to my attention.
