I got an email in my inbox one day, reading:

The Duck &the Devil
There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm. He was
given a slingshot to play with out in the woods. He practiced in the
woods; but he could never hit the target. Getting a little discouraged,
he headed back for dinner.
As he was walking back he saw Grandma's pet duck. Just out of impulse,
he let the slingshot fly, hit the duck square in the head and killed
it. He was shocked and grieved! In a panic, he hid the dead duck in the
wood pile; only to see his sister watching!
Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing. After lunch the next day
Grandma said, "Sally, let's wash the dishes" But Sally said, "Grandma,
Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen." Then she whispered to
him, "Remember the duck?" So Johnny did the dishes. Later that day,
Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing and Grandma said,
"I'm sorry but I need Sally to help make supper."
Sally just smiled and said, "Well that's all right because Johnny told
me he wanted to help" She whispered again, "Remember the duck?" So Sally
went fishing and Johnny stayed to help.
After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally's; he
finally couldn't stand it any longer.
He came to Grandma and confessed that he had killed the duck. Grandma
knelt down, gave him a hug and said, "Sweetheart, I know. You see, I
was standing at the window and I saw the whole thing, but because I love
You, I forgave you. I was just wondering how long you would let Sally
make a slave of you."
Thought for the day and every day thereafter?
Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done... And the devil keeps
throwing it up in your face (lying, cheating, debt, fear, bad habits,
hatred, anger, bitterness, etc.)...whatever it is...You need to know
that God was standing at the window and He saw the whole thing. He has
seen your whole life. He wants you to know that He loves you and that
you are forgiven.
He's just wondering how long you will let the devil make a slave of
The great thing about God is that when you ask for
Forgiveness; He not only forgives you, but He forgets. It is by God's
grace and mercy that we are saved.
Go ahead and make the difference in someone's life
Today. Share this with a friend and always remember:
God is at the window!
When Jesus died on the cross; he was thinking of you!
If you are one of the 93 % who will stand up for him

My question is, do we have collections of parables like this?

Little things, that are cute, friendly, funny, and meaningful, within the evolutionary context.
