Daily Nugget


Sunday, August 14th, 2011.



Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.


When he was an attorney, Abraham Lincoln was once approached by a man who passionately insisted on bringing a suit for $2.50 against an impoverished debtor. Lincoln tried to discourage him, but the man was bent on revenge. When he saw that the man would not be put off, Lincoln agreed to take the case and asked for a legal fee of $10, which the plaintiff paid. Lincoln then gave half of the money to the defendant, who willingly confessed to the debt and paid the $2.50! But even more amazing than Lincoln’s ingenuous settlement was the fact that the irate plaintiff was satisfied with it.”
(Clifton Fadiman, Little, Brown Book of Anecdotes)
Today, we live in a time when even friends may find themselves at opposite sides of a courtroom; as a result, We may need to learn to seek God’s wisdom for settlement. The writer of Proverbs 16:7 reminds us:
“When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
"God, let me please You so that I might prove Your faithfulness toward us.
Amen."
