One day when Mr Henry was robbed while journeying, he returned home to write this in his diary:
Lord, I thank you
that I have never been robbed before;
that although they took my money, they spared my life;
that although they took everything, it wasn’t very much;
that it was I who was robbed, not I who robbed.
Not sure that would be my response.
Praise the Lord for men who like this who have continued to form ‘so great a cloud of witnesses’ before us. God give us grace to run as they did!
