God’s Wisdom

Small mangoes growing on a tree in Ghosh Grove...

A wise old religious man sat under a mango tree in his garden in the noonday heat, and he looked at his pumpkin pines growing nearby. He said to himself, “How foolish God is. Here he puts a big heavy pumpkin onto a weak vine, which can’t do anything but just lie on the ground. And then he hangs those small mangoes onto a tree which can hold the weight of a man. If I were God, I think I could do better than that.”

Just then a bit of a breeze came up and knocked a loose mango off the tree. It fell right on the man’s head. Now he had a bump on his head, which made him a sadder and wiser man. “Suppose,” he thought now, “that there had been a pumpkin up there, instead of a mango… Never again will I try to plan the world for God, but I shall thank God that he has done so well.”
