All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way.
Isaiah 53:6

William (1)
Thuis happened at a mission station in Canada. One day some Indians brought a small boy along who had lost his parents. A missionary took care of the lad and named him William. Many years passed. The boy grew up and learned to read and write. He also learned to pray and came to know the God of heaven.

Indians often came to the mission station to trade with fur. One day they persuaded the boy to go with them. And William agreed and went without taking leave of the missionary.

His new life turned out to be far different from what he had become accustomed to. He often suffered hunger, and sometimes the Indians were harsh and cruel. As time passed, he forgot all that he had learned about God and His Son Jesus Christ. He married an Indian woman, and they had children.

Life was hard, and they often lacked the essentials. So William decided to move away with his family. They settled in a region where he had discovered plenty of game on former expeditions. But, remarkably, all the animals seemed to have suddenly disappeared. He often returned to his wigwam without any prey. It was winter in the mean time, and he was exhausted and felt desperate. All his family were suffering. William made another attempt. If he found nothing this time, he would shoot himself. Days passed, but nothing came. Distraught, he picked up his rifle, loaded it and pointed the barrel at his head. Then he thought he heard a shout: “William!”

We wonder whether there are people today who run away and forget God.

(to be concluded tomorrow)
