Short Stories (Stories for the Youth), book by Father Tadros Yacoub Malaty

177- More Blows Image: American judge صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: قاضي أمريكي Image: American judge

صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: قاضي أمريكي

Two university students were arrested for stealing from a general service office. One of them came from a rich family; the other was the son of a poor man. They were both tried for their theft. Four big lawyers defended the rich boy while only one lawyer defended the poor guy. At the end of the trial, the poor kid got three years in jail, while the rich Kid got 10 years sentence. Every body was surprised by the judge's discussion.

To stop everyone’s surprise, the judge made a statement:

The poor man’s son was guilty to his university only while the rich man’s son was guilty of hurting the university as well as hurting his family's reputation. He deserves a bigger punishment.

→ English translation of the story here at ضربات أكثر! Divider

Lord You taught me

That someone who knows better and makes mistakes deserves greater punishment.

Lord You manifested Your Great Love for me.

You offered me the means of salvation.

You let me lack nothing.

What excuse do I have if I neglected Your Salvation and despised Your Precious Blood?

Support me so I can be saved or else my punishment will be greater than that of unbelievers.
