Good answer. Good answer. I like the way you think. I'm gonna be watching you.

Bible scholar Matthew Henry (1662-1714) was once robbed of his wallet. Knowing he was to give thanks in everything (cf. 1 Thess 5:18), he reflected on this incident and recorded the following in his diary:
"Let me be thankful, first, because he never robbed me before; second, because although he took my purse, he did not take my life; third, because although he took all I possessed, it was not much; and fourth, because it was I who was robbed, not I who robbed."
