I came across a story on one of the wire services about a boomerang that once thrown didn’t return to its owner for 25 years.
Actually there’s more to the story than that.
An American tourist saw this boomerang in the Mount Isa museum in Australia and liked it so much that he lifted it, and got it out of the country.
But he was racked with guilt for over 25 years, so much so, that he sent it back to Australia along with a full confession of the crime. He hadn’t known how his mischief would boomerang. The report did say what sort of penalty he was going to face. I suspect the thief wouldn’t care. Not now. He would probably be relieved.
Thought this might be a useful story for you to use during Lent. Sin has a way of doing this—returning to us in ways we didn’t expect.
I guess during Lent, we’re invited to toss those boomerangs as far as the east is from the west, and Someone’s gonna catch it and not let it come back.
