This is the sound of a bell which a bean curd [tofu] seller rings every evening regularly. My five-year-old son likes to go buy tofu very much. He hides behind me and when I say, “Mister, please give me one block of tofu,” then he quickly comes out and grabs the plastic bag with tofu in it with his two hands. Then he stands close beside me again and waits until I pay for it.
One day, on the way home, I asked, “Who bought tofu today?” and he answered, “Jinho did,” grinning proudly. His little hand that held the plastic bag was cute, so I said, “That’s right. Jinho bought it. Good job. Thank you!” Right at that moment, I heard a bell ringing from deep down inside of my heart.
‘Don’t I look like this to Mother?’
I was saved because God Elohim called me, and I kept the regulations since Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother God opened the way for me. But all the while, I thought I overcame the difficulties because my faith was good. Though it was God who opened my mouth to preach the gospel, I deluded myself thinking that the members were able to realize well because I preached good by my hard-work; I mistakenly thought that I had really good skills.
My faith was young and immature like my son who felt proud, holding the bag of tofu which his mother bought. Heavenly Mother does not spare compliments, and always says, “Well done, good job,” though my faith is immature. I give sincere thanks to God the Mother for Her deep and benevolent love.
