As we approach Good Friday

David Kerr has posted a story that is available in many forms.

There was a blind girl in a small village. She loved a boy very much. Their love life was very smooth sailing but the only problem was that the blind girl wanted to see her partner. So she always used to say to her boy friend that "I will marry you the day i will be able to see you." One day someone donated eyes to the blind girl and she was able to see everything. At first she saw her boyfriend and was completely astonished to see that he was also blind. Then the boy asked the girl that, "now will you marry me?" The girl simply refused his marriage proposal; the boy only smiled and went away saying...

"Please take care of my eyes"

The lesson derived from the story depends on the storyteller. One person concluded that a woman was a woman, another suggested that this had Malaysian political applications.

For me, it's but a small illustration of Christ's sacrifice for us.
