The Words for the Week reflection this time around comes from Michael Josephson’s Character Counts.
At a Nazi death camp during WWII a Jewish prisoner noticed another praying. “What are you praying for?” he asked.
“I’m praising God.”
The first prisoner was astounded. “You’re praising God? In this hell of sadistic murderers? How could you praise God when we have all been cursed?”
The man said, “I’m praising God that we are not sadistic murderers.”
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you. — Princess Diana
