One day i threw a stone and accidentally hit my mother's hen and it died instantly. I thought I was just alone but surprisingly, my brother was right behind me watching. Then he said "give me 2000 shs and I wont tell mum" I said " I don't have but please don't tell her" The following day, Mum told him to wash the plates and sweep the surrounding, but he said: "Mum, Charles said he will do it" Then he came to me and said: Charles you wash the plates and sweep the surrounding or else, don't forget you killed a hen" Without hesitating, I washed the plates and swept the surrounding for him. The next day, mum told him to go and fetch water and fill the drum. He said again: "Mum, Charles said he will do it" Then he came to me and said: "Charles , you remember that hen?? Fill this drum with water or else...." That's how i drew water and filled the drum. That same day in the evening, mum sent him to the market to buy rice and again he said: Mum, Charles said he will go and buy". He came to me again and said: "Charles, don't forget that the hen is still dead, go to the market and buy 2 kilos of rice or else......" I just stood up and went to my Mum with tears in my eyes, i found her sitting in the house, I went to her, knelt down and said while crying: "Mum, am so sorry please forgive me. Am the one who killed your hen but it wasn't deliberately, please Mum forgive me am sorry" Then she replied: "my son, the day you killed the hen, I was at the window watching everything that happened. Your brother made you his slave because you did not want to come to me to confess and apologize. But now you have done it, you will be free, he will no longer use you" MORAL: Each time we sin, God sees us and our sins make us slaves, the moment you confess to God and ask for forgiveness, you are set free.
