I wanted a story that could show an example of failure, regret, consequences, and blessing. So often that chain of events is exactly what happens in real life.
When we make a mistake we think,"Oh no, this is the end, now I have really messed things up."
If we are sorry, truly sorry, it shows in our apology and demeanor. Our heart is humbled just like the child in the story.
Being sorry doesn't mean that their will not be consequences. Yep, we might have to do some work to fix the mess.
Finally in my own life, I have found that a blessing follows because I did the right thing.
Bart- you taught a good lesson!
