During a children's sermon one Sunday morning, I held up an ugly-looking summer shirt that I wore occasionally around the house. I explained to the children that someone said the shirt was ugly and should be thrown away. "This really hurt me," I explained. "I'm having trouble forgiving the person who said those mean things. Do you think I should forgive that person?" I asked the children.
my six-year-old daughter, Alicia, raised her hand. "Yes, you should,"
she said without hesitation.
why? The person hurt my feelings," I responded.
which Alicia wisely answered, "Because you're married to her."
