The Missionaries Leg

Morning Story and Dilbert

…all things work together for good to them that love God. Romans 8:28.

A Missionary was captured by cannibals. “I suppose you intend to eat me?” said the Missionary, and the chief grunted his affirmation. “Try a sample first, and see if you like me.” said the Missionary as he took his knife and cut a slab from the calf of his leg and handed it to him. “Try this and see!”

The chief took one bite and choked. The Missionary had a cork leg. The chief wanted no more of it and the Missionary was spared.

Years before, he had thought it a “great misfortune” to lose his left leg and to wear an artificial leg, but afterwards it saved his life. It also preserved a great ministry that would have other wise been terminated immediately by the cannibals. Yes, it worked out “for good!”

Are you going through a “tragedy” at this moment dear friend? Then remember ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD, TO THOSE WHO LOVE THE LORD JESUS! ALL THINGS!

“Those who leave everything in God’s hand will eventually see God’s hand in everything!”

    Thank you for sharing this story! It reminds me of a story Corrie ten Boom shared in The Hiding Place, when their barracks were infested by fleas. Her sister Bessie thanked God for the fleas, but Corrie had a hard time with that. Later, they found out that the guards wouldn’t come into their area, due to the fleas, thus they were able to hold bible studies and pray together. God bless you!

    • My family and I are in a new season in our lives. It’s hard sometimes to the purpose for being in a situation until God brings us out…… All we can do is hang on and remember

    Wow! That’ll get you thinking. The missionary should have brought coffee to the cannibals as a peace offering. They would still be friends today! 🙂

  6. How true that story is, but in the meantime those choices one makes in life are a rough road in most cases and hard to see God is at the stern pushing us forward as well as pulling. Love the story.

  7. Dilbert is one of those that keeps one chuckling far past reading it. I’ve been so seriously thinking that I needed that good laugh! It is good medicine.
