One day they went hunting and along the way a wild animal attacked the
king. His slave 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 slave replied only “My king, despite all these things, I can only
tell you that God is good, and he knows the “why” of all these things.
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
In the altar, ready to sacrifice the noble, a savage had found that the
victim had not one of his fingers, and the king 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 received very affectionately.
– My dear, God was really good for 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. IT is never wrong
Often we complain about life and things that happen to us apparently negative,
forgetting that nothing is random and that everything has a purpose.
Every morning, offer your day to God.
Ask God to inspire your thoughts, guide your actions, to ease your
feelings. And do not be afraid. God is never wrong!
You know why this message is for you? I do not know, but God knows,
because he never makes mistakes…….
The path of God and his word is perfect, without impurities. IT is the
way of all those who trust in him, as he says in 2 Samuel 22: 31
