Saint and the Villagers

A saint once lived on the outskirts of a village in Northern India, and it was to him that the village people always went to advice. Suddenly,there was an epidemic that killed all the roosters,hens and chickens in the village,so the villagers went to the Saint.

" O saint," they told him, "we have lost all our hens and roosters and even the little chickens. What shall we do?
" There must be some good in it ," said the Saint, and nothing more could induce him to say more.
A few days later a sickness of some kind struck down all of the villagers' many dogs. Once again they went to the saint.
"Now, O Saint,every single dog in the village has died. We are without watchdogs and at the mercy of thieves. What shall we do?
"God must have seen some good in this also ," the saint told them.
In those days , before they were any matchsticks, everyone in india would cover their cooking fires with ashes to keep them alive.But a few days after all the dogs had died, every single cooking fire went out mysteriously.
The villagers were more distressed than ever. They told the saint what had happened.
"This is another sign of the grace of god," he said with all the serenity in the world.
"What grace can there be,when we have no fire left to cook our food? the villagers asked him.
" Wait and see. Wait and see," said the saint."Have patience,It is not always a simple matter to discern the plans of God."
Almost a day had gone by when a cruel and warlike King, accompanied by a huge army,passed through the country side surrounding the village. Wherever he went,his soldiers killed,looted,burnt and destroyed with a savageand terrifying ferocity.When the King came near the village of the saint,he looked at it to see whether he should order it to be robbed and burnt.But when he saw that there was not a single cock crowing,not a single dog barking,and not a single fire smoking, he told his leading general. "This is a deserted village. Its not worth bothering about. Order the army forward to the next village."

It was only then the villagers came to understand the meaning of all that had happened.

Moral :
For where the lord is pleased to abide, nothing can go wrong.He has been taking care of our affairs from day one.
Those who live in the will of god are true devotees.
