Amazed by God|شگفت زده بوسیله خداوند



Once upon a time,

There was a seventy-year old man who had lost his sight for a few days, so he went to an ophthalmologist.


After a careful exam, the doctor told the old man that the problem was going to be solved with a surgery that would allow him to see again.


The surgery was very expensive but there was no other choice. The seventy year old man had to get a loan to pay for the surgery.


After going back and forth to the bank and finally getting a loan, he made an appointment for the surgery.


All together he was blind for over six months.


He had the surgery and after a few days the doctor removed the bandage to see if the surgery went well enough for the seventy-year old man to be able to see again.


The surgery was successful and he could see once again, but as soon as he realized that he was able to see, he started crying and couldn’t stop.

The doctor asked him: “Are you happy that you are able to see again?”


The seventy-year old man responded: “No. I am amazed by our God. How he gave me my sight all these years for free, without any indebtedness and expectation and didn’t ask me for anything in return.


But when I lost my sight I had to pay a lot of money to you and be in debt for years, pay a lot of interest and I was blind for more than six months.”
