Although I got robbed, I am thankful…

When I got home today, my house had been broken into. So far, I can only see that a TV is missing.

Pray for the young man who did it. Police are looking for a tall thin white young man who is a fugitive. He probably did this. (If that guy thought that he would get a lot of money or jewels from this house, he picked the wrong one.)

Although it is such an invasion of one’s life, there are some things that I am thankful for: when the great preacher and commentary writer Matthew Henry got robbed. He wrote in his diary: “Let me be thankful first because I was never robbed before, second because although they took my purse, they did not take my life, third, because although they took it all, it was not much and fourth, because it was I who was robbed, and not I who robbed.”
