Search for God

What are the Saints?

Perhaps this silly little story may help to answer that question:

A neighbour found Gerald on hands and knees.

“What are you searching for, Jones?”

“My key.”

Both men got on their knees to search. After a while the neighbour said, “Where did you lose it?”

“At home.”

“Goodness gracious! Then why are you searching here?”

“Because it is brighter here.”


Perhaps the Saints are only people who searched for God where they lost him. Where do you search for Him?
