Something that I found...

Discussion in 'Thoughts for Today' started by t.s.pike, Jan 2, 2015.

  1. ...and wanted to share with you all.

    Many years ago, Matthew Henry, a well-known Bible scholar, was once robbed of his wallet. Knowing that it was his duty to give thanks in everything, he meditated on this incident and recorded in his diary the following:
    Let me be thankful, first, because he never robbed me before; second, because although he took my purse, he did not take my life; third, because although he took all I possessed, it was not much; and fourth, because it was I who was robbed, not I who robbed.
    Matthew Henry (1662-1714)
    English Non-conformist Bible commentator
    dUmPsTeR, Cinderella8, Fadingman and 4 others say Amen and like this.
  2. I think that last point is the most important. I'd rather be the victim than the perpetrator. God is going to make it all right in the end.
