... Cinderella's stepsisters were not cruel out of choice,
but rather out of ignorance.
"Forgive them," a Man once said,
a Man who did nothing wrong
yet was sent to die in the most brutish way possible,
"Forgive them for they know not what they do."
Perhaps "they" don't know
that there's a better way to live;
that it is strength, not weakness,
to admit mistakes,
to serve others,
Perhaps they don't know
the One who is able to do all these
the One who can enable us to do all these...
Perhaps they know, but have forgotten.
What about me? Do I know God?
Knowing Who I know
makes it easier to forgive those who do not know (or have forgotten)
and hope that they would know (or remember) Him too.
They say, "To err is human, to forgive is divine."
Perhaps the very act of receiving forgiveness
for doing what one knows not,
would lead one to the One
whom one knew not.
