02/15/20 Weekend Grif.Net – Afraid to Die

The small-town doctor walked his dog over to visit a dying =
patient.  As the doctor was preparing to leave the man’s =
bedside, the patient asked, “Doctor, I am afraid. Tell me what =
lies on the other side.”


Very quietly, the doctor said, =
“I don’t know.”

 

“You don’t know? You, a Christian man, =
don’t know what is on the other side?”


The doctor was holding the handle =
of the door; on the other side came a sound of scratching and whining. =
As he opened the door, his dog sprang into the room and leaped on him =
with an eager
show of gladness. =

 

Turning to the =
patient, the doctor said, “Did you notice my dog? He’s never =
been in this room before. He didn’t know what was inside. He knew =
nothing except one certain fact: his master was here, and when the door =
opened, he sprang in without fear.”

 

Then added, =
“I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do =
know one thing: I know my Master is there and that is =
enough.”
