Disfigured War Veteran Helps Boy Regain Sight Only to be Rejected

Ps 33:18-19 “But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.”

It is not that God does not exist; man who does not want to acknowledge Him.

There is the story from South Korea. A man injured in the war and left with a disfigured face. No one wants to hire him and he was poor. He went around collecting metal cans and survived on these.

One day on the street he saw a blind orphan. He felt pity on him and care for him. He wanted to raise some money to help him. Consulted the doctor and took a few years to raise the money. He finally sent the boy to the hospital for treatment. The boy’s eyes were healed and restored.

The old man left without this boy knowing. He does not want to scare the boy with his scary look. The boy eventually left the hospital and got a job as a waiter at a restaurant.

One day, the old man came near to the restaurant. He was searching for drinking cans around the garbage when this waiter came out, and tells him to leave because he was scaring the customers. The old man looked at the boy and realised it was the orphan he had saved.

The boy went in, saying, “I hope I never see him again.”
