I once asked an old man with scraggly gray hair, beard, and a cheery squint
“How do you know if God exists?”
The old man replied,
“Does love exist? ”
“Yes,” I answered.
“Does good exist?”
“Of course…” I said.
“Does kindness exist?”
“I couldn’t imagine a world where it didn’t!”
“Then that’s how you know God exists!” the old man laughed.
“God is supposed to be present everywhere and fill the heavens and the earth, but I don’t see love, goodness, and kindness hardly anywhere.” I said.
The old man leaned over and, gazing into me, asked, “Have you looked in a mirror lately?”
“What, me? Yea right. I’m ugly.” I mocked.
“Love, kindness, and goodness knows no ugliness. The world is not responsible for showing you God. YOU are responsible for showing the WORLD God.”
