Feeling the weight

"Once while bathing in the river Sutlej I sank deep into the water. Above my head were tons of water and yet I did not feel the burden at all. When I camed back to the bank, I lifted a pot filled with water and found it very heavy. As long as I was in the water I did not feel the weight.

Similarly a sinner does not feel that he is a sinner as long as he lives in sin."

(Sadhu Sundar Singh, 1889-1929)
