Who Gets the Credit?

Horse running

A Chinese farmer had only one son and one horse. Nothing else in life mattered much to him. One night his horse ran off. His neighbors came to console him and said, “What bad luck!”

Later the horse returned and brought twelve wild horses with him. The neighbors, hearing the news, gathered at his home and rejoiced with him saying, “What good luck!”

While taming one of the wild horses, the son fell and severely broke his leg. The neighbors gathered once again and with remorse said, “What bad luck!”

Soon after this their warlord was engaged in a battle and took all of the able-bodied men to war –except the son. None of the men returned. But the son, left behind, led a long and productive life.

Was it the Lord or was it luck?

Every event that occurs in our lives is open to interpretation. The discerning mind sees God.

Prayer: Help us, Father, to realize Your presence and power in our lives and see Your hand at work. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Scripture: Romans 8:26
