Letters To God

Each year thousands of letters addressed to God end up in a sorting office in the Jerusalem GPO. A spokesman said, “We have hundreds of thousands of letters sent either to God or Jesus Christ, and for some reason they come to Jerusalem.” In one letter an Israeli man asked God for five thousand shekels to ease his poverty. The Jerusalem postal workers were so moved by it that they did a whip round and raised four thousand three hundred shekels which they sent to him. But a month later, the same person wrote again to God, thanking him for the contribution, but asking that next time not to send it through the post because the postal workers had stolen seven hundred shekels. Well, God works in mysterious ways, they say, sometimes even through the people at the GPO. But the biggest mystery of all is often our inability to recognize it.
