Never Too Busy

posted in: Illustrations | 0

st-francis-of-assisi-1St. Francis of Assisi was once very much occupied with some important work, and he gave orders to his attendants that he must on no account be disturbed. If anyone came desiring to see him, that one must be sent away. But after giving these strict orders, he paused and said, “But if a child should come—.” That is what our Father in Heaven says. Perhaps, so busy in His universe is He, when men come as philosophers or theologians and knock at the door, they are not admitted, but if a child should come — which means, if any come in the child spirit of loving trust — the door is opened instantly. If a child should come — the Father is never too busy.
