Many Happy Returns

The Hollywood mogul Louis B. Mayer used to tell the story of how as a boy he vowed to get even with an older boy who had beaten him in a fight. His mother overheard him and next day, on a picnic in the mountains, she took him to a spot that faced a mountain wall and told him to shout out what she had overheard him say the night before. So he did, and from the mountains all around his words echoed back to him. Then his mother told him to shout, “Bless you.” And as he did it the whole world seemed to say the same thing back to him. Then she reminded him of those great words of the Bible, “Do not repay evil with evil…but with blessing,” for as Jesus said, “What we measure out to other people is exactly what God will measure out to us.
