The people have to know it

As I was waiting for the elevator in the apartment house where I live, another tenant said, "I'm puzzled." When I asked him why, he replied, "Tell me, is God in charge of all people's lives?" My reply was, "Yes, He is. But the people have to know it." There was a moment of silence; then he indicated that the point had been made. As he left the elevator, he thanked me. I was grateful too, for I realized that God had shown me how to answer him. This was another proof that God is in charge.

To the material senses there seems to be good reason for uncertainty about God's control. The media constantly remind us of the threat of nuclear war, of diseases, addictions, accidents, hatred, intolerance, crime.
