Snelly the Snail agrees to help with a children’s sermon on forgiveness, but discovers that he is harboring grudges inside his shell… and he’s not at all comfortable. Only forgiveness can set him free.
“I don’t feel so well. I feel all scratchy and uncomfortable inside my shell.”
“I think you may be holding onto some grudges.”
“What’s a grudge?”
“It’s what forms inside when someone says or does something bad to you and you refuse to let go of the hurt. It stays inside you and gets all crusty and hard and you end up carrying it around forever.”
