Meet Walter Jervey
Toward the end of the Sunday service, the Minister asked, "How many of you have forgiven your enemies ?"
80% held up their hands. The Minister then repeated his question. All responded this time, except one man, Walter Jervey.
"Mr. Jervey, are you not willing to forgive your enemies ?"
"I don't have any," he replied gruffly.
"Mr. Jervey, that is very unusual. How old are you ?"
"Ninety," he replied. The congregation stood up and clapped their hands.
"Oh, Mr. Jervey, would you please come down in front and tell us all how a person can live ninety years and not have an enemy in the world?"
The old golfer tottered down the aisle, stopped in front of the pulpit, turned to face the congregation, and said simply, "I outlived all them knuckleheads.” !!
Then he calmly returned to his seat.
