Short Reading; God is Never Wrong

A king who did not believe in the goodness of God, had a servant who, in all circumstances did. Taking advantage of one of their disucssion sessions, the servant said: My king, do not be discouraged, because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes!  

One day they went hunting and along the way a wild animal attacked the king. His servant managed to kill the animal, but could not prevent His Majesty 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 servant replied: “My king, despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good, and he knows “why”. What God does is perfect. He is never wrong!”.  Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his servant.  

Later, he left for another hunt and was captured by savages who made human sacrifices.   At the altar, ready to sacrifice the Nobleman, the savages found that the victim lacked a finger, so he was released. According to them, he was not complete to be offered to the gods.  

Upon his return to the palace, he ordered the release of his servant whom he received very affectionately.   “My dear, God was really good to me! I was almost killed by wild men, but for lack of a finger, I was let go! 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 for this hunt, I would have been sacrificed in your place, 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.
