"See Godís tender concern for you and for me! He would do the same for each of you."

Mother Teresa, In the Heart of the World, Part 4

I will give you one more beautiful example of Godís love. A man came to our house and said, "My only child is dying! The doctor has prescribed a medicine that you can only get in England."

We have permission from our government to store life-saving medicines that are gathered from al lover the country. We have man people who go from house to house and gather leftover medicines. And they bring them to us and we give them to our poor people We have thousands of people who come to our dispensaries.

While we were talking, a man came in with a basket of medicines. I looked at that basket: right on the top was the very medicine that man needed for his dying child! If it had been underneath, I wouldnít have seen it.

If he had come earlier or later, I would not have remembered. He came just in time.

As I stood in front of that basket I thought, "There are millions of children in the world, and God is concerned with that little child in Calcutta. To send that man at that very moment! To put the medicine right on the top, so I could see it!"

See Godís tender concern for you and for me! He would do the same for each of you.
