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

208- Don’t Throw Stones at my Boat! Image: A ship with sail صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: سفينة و شراع Image: A ship with sail.

صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: سفينة و شراع.

While Sam was playing with his small boat in a pond, it went out of his reach. As Sam was scared to go down in the pond, he called his older brother to fetch it for him. Sam expected his brother to go down into the pond and fetch the boat for him. To his surprise, his brother threw stones in the pond beside the boat. He started shouting, “Don’t throw stones at my boat!”

 The elder brother ignored Sam's shouts and continued throwing rocks, which caused waves that carried the boat to Sam's reach.

God! How far is Your wisdom from my understanding!

You act as if You are throwing stones at my life,

But You satisfy my needs through Your wisdom and love.

God, throw Your stones as You wish.

Cause waves in my life.

I feel peaceful and relaxed as long as You are the One Who throws them.
