Scripture Reading:  Matthew 7:1.

Memory verse for the week:    2 Cor.10:12

“For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.” (NKJV)

 A couple had been married for several years without a child. For the purpose of companionship, they bought a Rottweiler puppy, named it Hatchi and loved her like a child.

The dog had access to all the rooms in the house. The puppy grew to become a large, beautiful dog and had on several occasions saved the couple from robbery. Hatchi was always faithful, loyal and defended her owners against any danger.

Seven years later, the couple was blessed to have the long awaited son. They were very happy with their new son and decreased the attention they had been giving the dog. Hatchi felt neglected and began to get jealous of the baby.

One day the couple left the baby sleeping peacefully in his cradle and went to the terrace to prepare a roast. They were shocked as they were heading to the nursery and saw Hatchi in the hallway with a bloody mouth, wagging its tail.

The dog’s owner thought the worst, pulled out a weapon and immediately killed the dog. Rushed to the baby’s room and found a beheaded snake close to the baby. The owner begins to mourn and exclaime “I killed my faithful dog!”

How often have we misjudged people without finding out facts.

The next time we are tempted to judge and condemn anyone remember the story of the faithful dog Hatchi.



  1. Spirit of good judgement, fall upon me, in the name of Jesus.

Powers that make a man fall into unpardonable error shall not swallow my destiny, in the name of Jesus.
