A cat was so faithful that the woman could leave her baby

with it & go out to attend other matters. She always returned

to find the child soundly asleep with the cat faithfully

watching over him.

One day something tragic happened. The woman as usual,

left the baby in the “hands” of this faithful cat & went out

shopping. When she returned, she discovered rather a nasty

scene, there was a total mess. The baby’s cot was

dismantled; his nappies & clothes torn to shreds with blood

stains all over the bedroom where she left the child & the cat.

Shocked, the woman wailed as she began looking for the


All of a sudden, she saw the faithful cat emerging from under

the bed. It was covered with blood and licking its mouth as it

had just finished a delicious meal.

The woman went berserk & assumed that the cat had

devoured her baby.

Without much thought she beat the cat with a wood to death.

But as she continued searching for the”remains” of her child,

she beheld another scene. Close to the bed was the baby,

who although lying bare on the floor, was safe & under the

bed the body of a snake torn to pieces in what must have

been a fierce battle between it & the cat, which was now


Then reality dawned on the woman who now began to

understand what took place in her absence. The cat fought to

protect the baby from the ravenous snake.

It was too late for her now to make amends because in her

impatience and anger,she had killed the faithful cat.

How often have we misjudged people & torn them to shreds

with harsh words and deeds before we have had time to

evaluate the situation? It is called SIN OF PRESUMPTION

Presuming things our way without taking the trouble to find

out exactly what the situation really is. Little patience can

drastically reduce major life long mistakes. Who Are you

misjudging right now. Don’t think what you think others are

thinking. Take time to get the whole truth. Please, be patient with people lest u live to regret ur actions against them. Be quick to hear but slow to respond and become angry.
