It is recorded in history that some years ago a man was condemned to be put to death. When he came to lay his head on the block, the prince who had charge of the execution asked him if there was any one petition that he could grant him. All that the condemned man asked was a glass of water. They went and got him a tumbler of water, but his hand trembled so that he could not get it to his mouth.

The prince said to him, “Your life is safe until you drink the water.”

He took the prince at his word and dashed the water to the ground. They could not gather it up, and so he saved his life.

By taking God at His word, we can have life’s greatest treasure—peace of mind—for the asking.—By Kenneth J. Holland, These Times, August 1951.
