Shall We See Good, and not Evil?

The famous Oriental philosopher, Lokman, while a slave, being presented by his master with a bitter melon, immediately ate it all.  “How was it possible,” said his master, “for you to eat so distasteful a fruit?”  “I have received so many favours from you, it is no wonder that I should, for once in my life, eat a bitter melon from your hand.”  This generous answer struck the master so forcibly that he immediately gave him his liberty.  With such sentiments should man receive his portion of suffering, [for a time] at the hand of God.

AMEN!       As we have finished The Wonders of God in Creation, we will be starting a new section – but I have not decided upon that new section yet!  So for the next couple of posts we will be taking a few random pieces from the book – and reading them!

About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."
