With organized baseball new, umpires dressed like mourners at a funeral or celebrants at a wedding. In high silk hats they made their calls. Except when a close play occurred. They would poll the crowd for an opinion before making a final decision. Voices From Cooperstown, 109
God never has, and never will ask our opinion on any decision he makes. He didn’t in olden times; he won’t begin in our ego-obsessed tech age.
Director José Quintero directed Ingrid Bergman in a film. He found her a pure nuisance. “That’s wrong, José, that’s O,K., José”, “How would you shoot this scene, Ingrid?” Etc. Once, when she watched a rehearsal of other actors, it impressed her so deeply she burst into encomiums. Quintero later said he should have hit her. Instead he felt like falling on his knees before her in gratitude. Ingrid Berman, My Story, 406
God has NEVER allowed us to say, “That’s good, God”; or “You should have done that, God”; or “I would suggest this or that instead, God”. Instead, every tongue sticks to the roof of its mouth, dumb before His majesty!
Let the whole world of inhabitants keep silence before the Almighty God. And if we want to speak at all, let it be PRAISE for and GRATITUDE to him who loved us and gave himself for us! End Part III
