A Mother Theresa Story

Morning Story and Dilbert

August 27, 2001

A successful businessman traveled to India to spend a month working in one of Mother Teresa’s shelters. He longed to meet the tiny nun, but Mother Teresa was traveling, and it wasn’t until the day before his departure that he received an audience. When he was finally in her presence, much to his surprise, he burst into tears. All the times when he’d been self-centered, busy or focused on his own gain flashed before his eyes, and he felt an enormous sadness that he had missed so many opportunities in his life to give of himself and his resources. Without a word, Mother Teresa walked over to where he was seated, put her hands on his shoulders and looked deeply into his eyes. “Don’t you know,” she said, “that God knows you are doing the best that you can.”
