The seriousness of the offence was flabbergasting, no one could quite believe how the parents could punish a child that way. Everyone agreed that it was over the top. The parents thought, the fright that would be left on the child’s mind by spending time alone in the forest for a few minutes would alter his behaviour, it rather became a thing of an embarrassment to them.
As minutes became hours and a day passed, they had no choice but to get the Police, the Army and other services involved to help locate the boy.
Someone up above, who we look up to was looking out for the child and kept him safe until he was found. Many prayers were said for his safety and the Lord answered those prayers.
