FORGIVE YOURSELF,very heart breaking story

What your about to read is a very heart breaking story but it can teach us all allot.A 17 year old man was getting excitted about turning 18 and he was looking at differnt cars to buy so he went to his mom and dad and told them about this car that he found.Well it was about 5k so he didnt have the money but he let his parents know how much he wanted it.His dad secretely sold some personal items and closewd his savings account and used all the little bit of money he could come up with to buy this car.Well the dad contacted the car dealership and said dont sale the car because I have the money but I want to give the money to my only son for his 18th birthday so we will be down to buy it next week.The car dealer said that will be fine,well the boy kept telling his dad and mom how much he would love to own this car and how much it would mean the world to him.Well the father was so excitted about his only child turning 18.Well on this boys birthday the father said to his wife lets put the money in a check for the full amount for the car on the last page of a brand new bible.So they taped the check in this new bible and on the sons 18 birthday they could hardly wait to give it to their son,so on their sons birthday,they waited till he got up and the father rushed to give his son a box with a brand new bible in it.Well the son thought the money is in the box and when he opened the box he only saw a bible.The boy was devasted and through the box with the bible in it and said,now that I am 18 I am gone.So he packed up his clothes in a hurry and left.About 6 months later the boy decided to call home and he asked his mom to see if he could speak to his dad,and she bursted in to tears over the phone and said he died of a broken heart,they couldnt figure why he died but he was so hurt he died shortly after you left.The son felt so condemed he decided he couldnt go home,so he lived in another state.He wrote his mom to post cards in 3 months and finalley one day he gets a strange letter from an attorney saying your mom passed away you need to come home.So he went home and saw that bible laying on his old bed and when he opened it all of a sudden a check fell out for the amount he needed to buy that car he wanted.He could only sit there and cry and plead for his mom and dad to come back but they both passed away.How many times has God shown youlove,mercy,grace and compassion and we didnt even take the time to say thank you lord Jesus?

    I see it has been a very heated day on the Christian Faith sight. The Lord reminded me that those who set their minds on the things of Christ are taking every thought captive. We need to lay the axe to any root of bitterness that may try and spring up and not give Satan any open doors to break into our house.

    Galatians 5:17-26

    17: For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things you please.

    18:But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

    19:Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality,

    20:idolatry sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outburst of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions,

    21:envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you just as I have forewarned you that those who practice such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

    22:But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

    23:gentleness, self control; against such things there is no law.

    24:Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

    25:If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.

    26:Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another

    For those that choose to take up our cross and follow Christ. I remind you, as well as myself, as we advance the gospel of Christ, that it is not our word we are advancing but His Word. If we are accepted for it great. If we are persecuted for it great. What a small price to pay to see the Glory of the Lord revealed.

    Our weapons are not carnal but mighty for the pulling down of demonic strongholds that are operating in the lives of those who do not believe and are being deceived by Satan. Pray and come against the Spirit operating and deceiving those who would oppose our Gospel, but do not come against the man being deceived.

    Love always in Christ

    • I needed to be rebuked because what I said isnt right and I appreciate you taking the time to show me where I was wrong.The story meant allot to me personalley and I realize now I cant take things to heart like this I must take them to God all the time.So once again thank you for taking the time for a settle rebuke because I needed that.Have a blessed day Tim

  2. The story is true and its sad you would make a comment like this,maybe you should read some time what the Holy bible says some time, because if this is love to you I praise God I dont know your God.Because this family I actualley knew.

    Tim, this story has all the markings of something one would find in their email box as a viral hoax, so I went to "snopes.com" to verify it.

    If you click that link, it will take you to the urban legend the story connects to… Hallmarks of a hoax are that it gives no specific markers to identify authenticity. What was the family's name, dates, etc.

    PS – One might say the moral of the story is to "read your Bible!" 🙂

  4. Sorry that the parents chose to deceive the son into thinking that he was getting a Bible not a car?

    Sorry that they raised a son who would just run off when he didn’t receive what he wanted?

    Who was most heart broken?

    • Thank you for sharing this because I didnt realize it until you brought up some good points here.Wisdom my friend is worth more than Gold and now I see why.Thank you……..Tim
