A scientist and a botanist were exploring the Alps together for some special kinds of flowers. One day they spied, through their field glasses, a flower of rare beauty, but it was in a ravine with perpendicular cliffs on both sides. Someone must be lowered over the cliff to get it. A native boy was watching. They said to him, “We will give you five pounds if you will let us lower you into the valley to get the flower.”
The boy looked into the valley and said, “Just a moment; I’ll be back.” He soon returned with a man. “I’ll go over the cliff,” he said, “and get the flower for you, if this man holds the rope. He’s my dad.”
Have we learned to trust the Lord as this little boy trusted his father?
