Misery of War

Marco was trodding along the Rialto. He heard the cry, "Captain Antonio has returned from sailing along the lands of the Saracens with. He brings much spoil with him."
Out of a mixture of curiousity and avarice Marco walked toward the cry. Then he saw it, a line of poor souls in chains. One of them turned to Marco and said "Please sir, buy me"
Marco asked,"Why me?"
The captive said, "You look like a wealthy man, and I can work for you faithfully. If I am not bought by a wealthy man, who knows what fate awaits me?"
Marco thought, "Probably true".
Then the man said, "Please I am not your enemy, I am just a fisher out of Alexandria that the Captain seized in his voyage".
Marco thought again,"The curse of war strikes far-there is probably a Venetian in Alexandria saying the same thing right now."
Then he said to the captive, "Are you willing to work your way home?"
A desperate hope gleamed in his eyes, "Yes sir."
Marco said, "Our family has a ship heading that way, and needs a few more crew-are you a good seaman"
The answer came, "Yes".
Then Marco turned to the man making the sale,"How much is he"
"Seventy-five Ducats"
Marco said, "Very well, I have that with me. Done."
Then he turned to the captive, "What is your name?"
"Ali".
"Very well, Ali; you are free; work hard and you will see your home again."
"Thank you good sir".
Then Marco turned to his valet,"Show him to his ship."
Latter, Marco's father asked him, "You spent that money to free a Saracen slave; surely there are better things".
Marco said, "Ducats aren't everything, and God will bless us for being kind even to Saracens."
His father said, "Perhaps so. But couldn't you at least have gotten a better bargain?"

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
