  • hospital bedThe priest was preparing a man for his long day's journey into night. Whispering firmly, the priest said, "Denounce the devil! Let him know how little you think of his evil!"

    The dying man said nothing.

    The priest repeated his order. Still the dying man said nothing.

    The priest asked, "Why do you refuse to denounce the devil and his evil?"

    The dying man said, "Until I know where I'm heading, I don't think I ought to aggravate anybody."

  • dark forestGod Knows by Minnie Louise Haskins.

    And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: “Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”
    And he replied:
    “Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”
    So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night. And He led me towards the hills and the breaking of day in the lone East.

    So heart be still:
    What need our little life
    Our human life to know,
    If God hath comprehension?
    In all the dizzy strife
    Of things both high and low,
    God hideth His intention.

  • cross“If God had perceived that our greatest need was economic, he would have sent an economist.

    If he had perceived that our greatest need was entertainment, he would have sent us a comedian or an artist.

    If God had perceived that our greatest need was political stability, he would have sent us a politician.

    If he had perceived that our greatest need was health, he would have sent us a doctor.

    But he perceived that our greatest need involved our sin, our alienation from him, our profound rebellion, our death;

    ... and he sent us a Savior. ”

    ― D.A. Carson, A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Priorities from Paul and His Prayers

  • cemetaryIn a small town in America, there was a Doctor Brackett. He was known as the poor man's friend because he spent hours at the bedside of unfortunates and never ever took a fee from them. He lived in two upstairs rooms over a grocery store. At the foot of the stairs going to his quarters was a painted sign which said: DOC BRACKETT - OFFICE UPSTAIRS.

    He even lost his girlfriend, whom he wanted to marry, because, he spent more time with the sick than with her. He spent a life of selfless dedication to any and every person around him. When he died, his funeral was the biggest ever seen in that town.

    At a meeting afterwards, the townspeople tried to figure out what kind of monument to erect to the memory of the doctor. A couple who had been especially helped by the doctor, on their way home from the meeting, removed the sign from his door and the following day it appeared over his grave.

    It read: DOC BRACKETT - OFFICE UPSTAIRS.
