A King once had a slave who, in all circumstances said: “My King, do not be discouraged because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes…” One day, they went hunting and a wild animal attacked the King, the slave managed to kill the animal but couldn’t prevent his majesty losing a finger. Furious and without showing gratitude, the King said; “If God was good, I would not have been attacked and lost one finger!” The slave replied: “Despite all these things,I can only tell you that God is good and everything He does is perfect, He is never wrong!”
Outraged by the response, the King ordered the arrest of his slave. Later,he left for another hunt and was captured by savages who use human for sacrifice. In the altar, the savages found out that the king didn’t have one finger in place so he was released because he was considered not “complete” to be offered to the gods… On his return to the palace, he authorized the release of his slave saying; “My dear, God was really good to me! I was almost killed 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 put you in jail?”
His reply: “My King, if I had gone with you, I would have been sacrificed for you because I have no missing finger.” Remember, everything God does is perfect, He is never wrong… Often we complain about life, and the negative things that happen to us, forgetting that nothing is random,and that everything has a purpose… There is a reason for your existence.
