One should never complain about something that tells us the truth

I heard about a man who lived on Long Island, who achieved a lifelong ambition by purchasing a very fine barometer. But he was extremely disappointed to find that the needle seemed to be stuck, pointing to the sector marked ‘hurricane.’ After shaking the barometer vigorously, with no change, he sat down and wrote a scorching letter to the store where he’d purchased it and mailed the letter next morning on his way to a meeting in New York. That evening he returned home to find not only the barometer missing, but his house also. Long Island that day had been ravaged by hurricane force winds.
One should never complain about something that tells us the truth – even when we don’t like what it says. As Jesus said: ‘all who reject … my message will be judged by the truth I have spoken.’
