MY PRIMARY SCHOOL ERASER
When I started using Biro in my primary school, and I made a mistake, I would try hard to erase it. Sometimes I use chalk, but it later reappears.
So I began to use saliva, it worked only to leave holes in my book.
My teachers then used to beat me for being outrageously dirty. But all I tried to do was cover my errors.
One day, a kind hearted teacher who love me so much called me aside.
“My dear, anytime you make a mistake, just cross it and move on. Trying to erase it would only damage your book”.
“But, I don’t want people to see my mistake and laugh at me”, I protested.
“Trying to erase it will make more people know about your mess, and the stigma is for life”
Have you made a mistake, cross it and move on.
Mistakes are normal in life. Everyone makes mistakes, there is no use trying to cover them. Just cross it and move on.
That is; take your mistakes to the Cross of Calvary, at the feet of Jesus, leave it there and move on.
Don’t try to create more irredeemable errors by trying within your power to erase it.
To err is human.
