THE WEALTHY MAN

   Posted by: pastordiehl   in Uncategorized

The following story is from a book I read and I can’t recall the author or the name of the book:

“I am reminded of the story told of a woman in tattered clothes, standing on a big city street corner with her sad-looking little boy, begging for food or money to buy food. It so happened that among the passersby was a wealthy man who looked at them but did not offer any help. When he arrived at his palatial home and looked at his dinner table laden with the finest foods, be began to think about the poor little waif and his distressed mother. The more he thought about the situation, the angrier he became at God. Then he clenched his fist and shook it in what he thought to be God’s direction. He cried out, “How can you allow such misery? Why don’t you do something to help those unfortunate people?

Then, somewhere deep within himself came God’s answer: “I did. I created you.”

Perhaps today you will come upon someone in need that you can help. Watch and see what God leads you to do, then do it. Let me know how that makes you feel.
