What? Forgive! By Kimberly L. Geisler

Lilly Woe sat and cried as she held her broken baby doll. 

Little Billy hid down beside the bed. "Uh-oh," he thought, "I better hide before she finds me."

Willy walked into the room, "What's wrong Lilly?" He asked.

"Billy broke the arm off my baby doll," replied Lilly. "He's mean and I don't like him anymore!"

"Don't cry Lilly," said Willy. "I can fix your doll for you."

"You can?" She sniffled. "Sure," he replied. "But first you must do one thing."

"What's that?" Asked Lilly.

"You must forgive Billy," said Willy. 

"What!" she yelled "Are you kidding?" 

"Well," said Willy, "The Bible says in Matthew 18:21 & 22:

Then Peter came to him (Jesus) and said, Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Seven times? Jesus said to him, I say not seven times, but seventy times seven."

"You mean I have to forgive him over and over, again and again, no matter how mean he is to me?" Asked Lilly.

"Yep," said Willy. "And love him too."

"AND LOVE HIM TOO!" She exclaimed. "Oh, alright, I'll try. But it won't be easy." 

"I know," he replied. "But God will help you, and bless you for trying."

Willy fixed Lilly's doll and together they set out to find Billy.
