SEEING THE INVISIBLE
HE was very wealthy and yet very devout. Every morning he devoted
two hours worshiping God.
A young man came to him. “Sir, I am in urgent need of money. This
watch is all I own. I wish to sell it; will you please buy it?”
The gentleman was annoyed. “Don’t you see how busy I am? He cried
out impatiently. “Come next month.”
“But Sir,” persisted the man in a beseeching voice, “It’s urgent; I
need the money right now; my mother is ill.”
“Didn’t you hear what I said? Get out at once or l’ll have you
thrown out,” yelled the gentleman.
“You needn’t do that, I am leaving. But just one question: Have you
no love for God?”
“That’s foolish question! I love God with all my heart. What has
that got to do with it?”
“No, you don’,” exclaimed the desperate man. “You don’t even believe
in God. If you did you wouldn’t have threatened to throw me out. Man
is the visible image of God. If you don’t believe in what is visible
image of God. If you don’t believe in what is visible, how can you
believe in something invisible!” With that, he left the room.
