An old lady had a dream one night. She saw God in her vision and told him: “Dear God, I am very lonely, please become my guest and visit me at my home. Keep me, companied.”
God promised that tomorrow, he would be her guest and visit her in her home.
The old lady woke up, very happy. She started to clean her home deep down. Everywhere was spot clean and shiny. Then she went out and bought some fresh bread and cooked her best dish, and waited for God to come to visit her.
Finally, her doorbell rang, and she jumped to open the door. There was an older man. He said: “Sorry to bother you, but I am starving and a great smell came out of your house. Can you give a little food so I wouldn’t have to sleep hungry again?”
The old woman screamed and said: “How dare you knocked on my door. The good smell is for a dear guest, and I don’t have enough to share.”
She went inside and continued to wait for God.
The doorbell rang again, and there was a little boy and said: “Sorry to bother you, I am freezing. Do you have any extra jacket so I can keep warm this winter?”
The old lady shut the door angrily without saying anything to the boy and mumbled while going back inside.
The doorbell rang for the third time, and she ran to the door. There was a young woman and said: “I lost my husband a few months ago, and have two kids. Can you give me money so I could buy food for my children?”
The old lady sent the young mother away with insult.
It was getting late, and God didn’t come to the old woman’s house as he promised. The old lady went to sleep, disappointed, and heartbroken.
She had a dream and saw God again and told him: “You promised to visit me. I waited all day. How come you didn’t show up?”
God said: “I never break my promise. I came to visit you three times, but you shut your door on me.”
