    This Is Good
    =============
    The story is told of a king in Africa who had a
    close friend
    with whom he grew up. The friend had a
    habit of looking at
    every situation that ever occurred in his life
    (positive or
    negative) and remarking, "This is good!"
    One day the king and his friend were out on a
    hunting
    expedition. The friend would load and
    prepare the guns for the
    king. The friend had apparently done
    something wrong in
    preparing one of the guns, for after taking the
    gun from his
    friend, the king fired it and his thumb was
    blown off.
    Examining the situation, the friend remarked
    as usual,
    "This is good!"
    To which the king replied, "No, this is not
    good!"
    and proceeded to send his friend to jail.
    About a year later, the king was hunting in an
    area that he
    should have known to stay clear of. Cannibals
    captured him and
    took him to their village. They tied his hands,
    stacked some
    wood, set up a stake and bound him to the
    stake.
    As they came near to set fire to the wood,
    they noticed that the
    king was missing a thumb. Being
    superstitious, they never ate
    anyone who was less than whole. So untying
    the king, they sent
    him on his way.
    As he returned home, he was reminded of the
    event that had taken
    his thumb and felt remorse for his treatment
    of his friend.
    He went immediately to the jail to speak with
    his friend.
    "You were right," he said, "it was good that
    my thumb was blown
    off." And he proceeded to tell the friend all
    that had just
    happened. "And so, I am very sorry for
    sending you to jail for
    so long. It was bad for me to do this."
    "No," his friend replied, "This is also good!"
    "What do you mean, 'This is good'?
    How could it be good that I sent my friend to
    jail for a year?"
    "If I had not been in jail, I would have been
    with you."
    Every thing happening to you is Good, if you
    take it positively!

    Hata Neno la Mungu linasema vivyo hivyo in
    Romans 8:28
    "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. "
