THE BENEFITS OF GOD TO MAN - 4 Avenue de Camoens, October 27th
God alone ordereth all things and is all- powerful. Why then does He send trials to His servants? (49:4)

The trials of man are of two kinds. (a) The consequences of his own actions. If a man eats too much, he ruins his digestion; if he takes poison he becomes ill or dies. If a person gambles he will lose his money; if he drinks too much he will lose his equilibrium. All these sufferings are caused by the man himself, it is quite clear therefore that certain sorrows are the result of our own deeds. (49:5)
