HIS POINT 634
"The dice of God," wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson,
"are always loaded."
To further explain this metaphor, Mr. Emerson
continued..."The world looks like a mathematical
equation, which, turn it how you will, balances itself."
"Take what figure you will, its exact value still
returns to you. Every secret is told, every crime
is punished, every virtue rewarded."
We suspect Mr. Emerson is trying to tell us that
"God always makes His point." Nothing good, nor
nothing bad, is ever hidden from the eyes of the Lord.
And, we would be the most wretched of men if we did
not have the faith and the hope that the dice of God
have been loaded with the grace and the mercy of Christ.
