The Heart of God

In Tales of the Magic Monastery, by Theophane Boyd, there is a story about a little child who visits a magic monastery one Christmas. Near the entrance to the monastery, at the outer gate, sat a blind beggar. As the child went to pass through the gate he placed a coin in the man’s bowl. The old man cried out: “Who will lead me into the heart of God?” The boy was bewildered for a brief moment. Then he went and sat in front of the old gentleman, took his two hands in his own, and said tenderly: “Together we will go into the heart of God.”

Beautiful, Meredith. It reminds me of the Other Wiseman. It's the heart that counts.
