A man who had been shipwrecked was living alone on a desert island. He had finally built himself a little refuge out of that would shelter him from the sun and the rain. That night his hut caught fire and burned to the ground.
"What are You doing, God?" he cried. "I have so little left in life, and yet You let my house burn down. How could You let this happen to me?
"A few hours later a ship came and picked him up. "We saw your fire signal," the crew said. "We didn't realize these were inhabited islands. We'll take you home.
"The man closed his eyes in embarrassment. "Uh, thank You, God," he said finally.
