Had a really long day out today. Got back home about thirty minutes ago.
I was getting out of the car when I heard a little girl crying along the dirt road in front of my house. Instinctively I looked in her direction. Since it was dark, I couldn’t see her well. But I could make out another figure walking closely beside her – another little girl, slightly taller than the first. “Sisters”, I thought.
As they walked along, the bigger sister was intermittently spanking her younger sister, apparently for no reason.
“Kai!” I shouted at her as I walked towards them both. They both stopped. I flashed a torch on the tormentor, “What has your sister done? Why are you making her cry?” to which she responded with a mischievous smile. She then chuckled softly. Then I saw she was making her sister cry just for the raw fun of it. E V I L ! ! ! She couldn’t even be up to ten years old.
I made her apologise to her younger sister. She did – in a way that made me feel the bashing was still going to continue.. when, of course I wouldn’t be there.
As I walked back towards my house, I remembered a conversation I had with two of my friends some hours back about how we humans are naturally inclined towards evil.
We need God to save us from our selves.
Sweet dreams fellas.
