The sin of Presumption

Dog wearing glasses

You may have heard this story, but it’s worth reading it again.  It’s a touching story about how a little impatience caused an irreparable damage.

A dog was so faithful that the woman could leave her baby with it and go out to attend other matters.She always returned to find the child soundly asleep with the dog faithfully watching over him.

One day something tragic happened. The woman as usual, left baby in the “hands” of this faithful dog and went out shopping. When she returned, she discovered rather a nasty scene: there was a total mess.
baby’s cot was dismantled, his nappies & clothes torn to shreds with blood stains all over bedroom here she left the child & the dog.
Shocked, the woman wailed as she began looking for the baby.
All of a sudden, she saw the faithful dog emerging from under the bed. It was covered with blood and licking it’s mouth as if it had just finished a delicious meal.
Woman got angry and assumed that dog had devoured her baby.
Without much thought she beat the dog with a wood to death. But as she continued searching for “remains” of her child, she beheld another scene. Close to bed was the baby who, although
lying bare floor, was safe & under bed where body of a snake was torn to pieces in what had
been a fierce battle between snake and the dog which was now dead.
Then reality dawned on the woman who now began to understand what took place in her
absence. The poor dog fought to protect the baby from ravenous snake.
It was too late for her now to make amends because  in her impatience and anger,she had killed the faithful dog.
How often have we misjudged people and torn them to shreds with harsh words and deeds before we have had time to evaluate the  situation?.
This is called SIN OF PRESUMPTION.
Presuming things our way without taking trouble to find out exactly what the situation really is.

Little patience can drastically reduce major life long mistakes.
