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.
