A King, who did not believe in the goodness of God, had a slave who, in every and all circumstances, said: “My King, do not be discouraged, because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes!”
One day the King and his slave 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 said: “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” of all these things. 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, and was captured by savages, who made human sacrifices.
On the altar, ready to sacrifice the King, the savages found that the victim had not one of his fingers, so he was released. According to them, he was not complete so he could not be offered to the gods.
Upon his return to the palace, the King authorized the release of his slave, then, the King received him very affectionately.
“My dear servant, 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?”
“My King, if I had gone with you on this hunt, I would have been sacrificed for you, because I have no missing finger; therefore, remember, everything God does is perfect. He is never wrong.”
Often we complain about life, and negative things that happen to us, forgetting that nothing is random and that everything has a purpose.
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!
“The path of God and His word is perfect, without impurities. He is the way of all those who trust in Him” 2 Samuel 22:31
What you do with this message is up to you.
May God put in your heart the desire to send it to someone.
GOD IS NEVER WRONG.
