Thirst for God

  • August 30, 2017

A student complained one day to his teacher that he didn’t encounter God. The teacher answered:

`If you will say to yourself that you need Him, then you will meet God.`

The student didn’t understand the message and for this reason one day when they were in front of a river the teacher asked from his student to keep his head under water. When he got out of it the teacher asked him why he didn’t stay longer. Then the child said:

`Because I needed to breathe.`

`When you feel a need for God as powerful as the one you had to breathe then you will meet God` said the teacher.
