Many years ago, in less civilized times, the punishment for crime was very, very severe. One man caught stealing sheep had the letters ST (Sheep Stealer) branded on his forehead for all to see.
The man had a complete change of heart, and gave himself totally to God and to neighbour, and by the time he was old he was much revered and respected among his neighbours.
When the children asked their parents what the letters ST stood for, they simply said “SAINT”. (jackmcardle)
In their eyes that was all it could possibly mean after all the years.
-A Saint is a sinner who never stopped trying.
– A saint is a sinner who surrendered to God, and then God took over and ran his life.
