We can't dictate Providence

for September 9

The petty sovereign of an insignificant tribe of aborigines every morning stalks out of his hovel, bids the sun good morrow, and points out to him with his finger the path he is to take for this day.

Is this arrogance more contemptible than ours when we would dictate to God the course of His Providence, and question the wisdom of His dealings with us?

[From the original Spurgeon Birthday Book published by Passmore & Alabaster, London.]

NOTE: I had an email from Charles today, so I assume he is back and will be posting comments in the usual manner.
