A king who did not believe in the goodness of God, 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 along the way 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 nobleman 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 all these things happened. What God 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 made human sacrifices. In the altar, ready to sacrifice the nobleman, the savages found that the victim had not one of his fingers, so he was released. According to them, it was not so complete to be offered to the gods.
Upon his return to the palace, he authorized the release of his slave that he now received him affectionately. My dear, 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 in 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. Do not be afraid. God is never wrong my brethen.
Let us go close to God because when you stay and work with somebody with time, you will begin to do things like him. The scripture says ”we should be perfect as He is perfect”. Perfection will come from Him by going close to Him. God can use any means to protect us from any danger. The bible says in psalm 91 : 12 that ” for He shall give His angels charge over you. To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone”. His angels are guiding us both day and night so that we cannot miss the way.
