Short Stories (Stories for the Youth), book by Father Tadros Yacoub Malaty

122- Belonging to the Cannibals

 

One of the servants of God was moved when he saw a shepherd crying. He asked him, Why are you crying?

The dog ate part of my Bible while I was resting amongst my sheep.

Dont cry. Ill give you another copy.

The problem is not in getting another copy. The problem is that I used to be a cannibal and when and when I knew the Word of God it changed me. I become loving to people and calm.

What has this to do with your dog?

Im afraid that my dog would be calm and wouldnt be able to protect my sheep from the wolves.

The servant of God smiled and told him that the Word of God is not letters and pages but a living relationship with God. He said to him, your live was changed because of the Word of God but your dog wont get what you were blessed with. The Word of God became Man to renew the human life.

Then the shepherd was relieved and was assured that his dog would not change by eating part of the Bible and would continue to guard the cheep.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: من أكله لحوم البشر!

You changed the life of a cannibal, O the right Word.

Yes You are alive and effective.

When will we see all nations enjoying your love?

When will You convert them to heavenly angels?
