Kings and potentates are unhappy in spite of their wealth and external glory, because of their lack of faith in the beneficent providence of God. The Almighty Lord of the worlds seated in our hearts is the sole doer. We are mere puppets. Let Him make us dance as He wills. Ours is not to question why. Difficulties and worries are not due to outside causes. They are due to a mind not surrendered up to God.
