Doubt: An Unwanted Guest

George Iles:- Doubt is the begining, not the end, of wisdom

A couple were off to a friends place. The morning was pleasant, and they enjoyed themselves until they happened to remember a certain bridge which was very old and probably unsafe, “I shall never dare to go over that bridge”, said the wife “and we can’t get across the river any other way”! “Oh” said the man, “I forgot that bridge, it is a bad place; suppose it should break through and we would fall into the river and be drowned!” “Or” said the women, adding to his complaints, supposes you should step on a rotten plank and break your leg; who would became of me and the baby?” “I don’t know responded the husband, “what would become of any of us, for I couldn’t work, and we should all starve to death.”

There they stood not going forward not going back

Until someone came along and told them that the bridge had been replaced with a new one.

Their doubts had been worse than useless.

And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.
