“I aspire to inspire before I expire! My talent is God’s Gift to me. What I do with it is my gift back to God. God bless all!”
God is Never Wrong
There was a king who did not believe in the goodness of God but who had a slave who, in all circumstances, would always say, “My king, do not be discouraged, because everything God does is perfect. He makes no mistakes!”
One day they went hunting and along the way a wild animal attacked the king. His slave managed to kill the animal, but could not prevent his majesty from losing a finger.
Furious and without showing his gratitude for being saved, the king asked “Is God good? If He was good, I would not have been attacked and lost my finger.”
The slave replied, “My king, despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good, and he knows why these things happened. What God does is perfect. He is never wrong!”
Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his slave. Later, the king left for another hunt, this time alone. He was captured by savages who engaged in human sacrifices.
At the altar and ready to sacrifice the king, the savages discovered that their victim did not have one of his fingers. According to them, only a whole person with all of his/her parts intact could be offered to the gods. The king, without a finger, was deemed an abominable sacrifice for their gods. So they released the king.
Upon his return to the palace, the king authorized the release of his slave. He received the slave affectionately. He told his slave, “My dear, God was really good to me! I was almost killed by the wild men, but for lack of a single finger, I was let go! But I have a question: if God is so good, why did he allow me to put you in jail?”
The slave answered, “My King, if I had gone with you on this hunt, I would have been sacrificed instead because I have no missing finger. Remember everything God does is perfect. He is never wrong. He made you keep me in jail so I would not be with you on the hunt.”
Our Lives are full of ups and downs. When things do not turn out the way you want, do NOT lose your love for life, your faith or your belief in the future. As long as we are good people, good things will one day follow. Be Calm. Be Patient and stay Positive. The hardships of today are preparing you for the light of tomorrow.
Often, we complain about life and of the negative things that happen to us. We forget that nothing is random and that everything has a purpose and happens for a reason. Every morning, offer your day to God; don’t be in a rush.
Ask God to inspire your thoughts, guide your actions, and ease your feelings. And do not be afraid. God is never wrong!
God is never wrong!
GOD BLESS US ALL!
