During college days, a man did a prank and accidentally took the life of a classmate. Although he had confessed his wrong to God and the case has been settled, he continued to be so torn up on the inside that he couldn’t keep a job or maintain a good relationship with his wife.

But one day the mother of the boy who had died stopped in to see him. She was astounded that he had been carrying this load of guilt. She assured him that she has forgiven him long ago and that none of her relatives held any ill feeling toward him. Furthermore, she reminded him that God had erased this unfortunate accident from the record.

Then she gently rebuked him, telling him it was wrong for him to be burdened with remorse.

When he finally came to accept the pardon being extended to him, he felt a new sense of freedom, was reunited with his wife, and settled down in a good job.
