The Burnt Pie Analogy
Not just a little burnt, but black as coal.
Their grandson waited to see what the Grandfather would say.
But he just ate the pie, and asked how the boy’s day was.
Then, the boy heard his Grandmother apologize to the old man for his dinner.
The Grandfather responsed,
“Dear, I like your pie.”
Later, the boy asked him if he had told the truth.
He put his arm on his grandson’s shoulder and said, “Your Grandma had a tough day at work. She was tired.”
“The burnt pie didn’t harm me but, a sharp word could have hurt her.”
We all make mistakes.
We shouldn’t focus on mistakes but, support those we love.
That’s the secret of long and happy relationships.
I like this and a good reminder of how our tongue, the words we say can hurt another, even in something simple as a burnt pie.
In Proverbs 21, we are told to guard our tongue. In Ephesians let no unwholesome words come out. Plus many more places in the Bible.
Maybe when you see a burnt pie, you’ll think of this.
