What Happened When Matthew Henry Was Robbed?

Matthew Henry, a pastor whose 300 year-old commentaries are still widely used today, was once robbed and left with little or nothing. Upon that occasion, this is what he prayed:

I thank Thee first because
  • I was never robbed before;
  • Second, because although they took my purse they did not take my life;
  • Third, because although they took my all, it was not much;
  • And fourth because it was I who was robbed, and not I who robbed.

Oh, that my life would be so free and so thankful!
