What Is Repentance?

by | Jun 6, 1998 | Repentance

A minister was once speaking to a group of children. In opening his talk he asked the question,

“What is meant by the word repentance?”

A little boy raised his hand.

“Well,” the minister said, “what is it, my lad?”

“Being sorry for your sins,” was the answer.

A little girl on the back seat raised her hand.

“Well, my little girl, what do you think?”

“I think,” said the child, “it’s being sorry enough to quit.”
