Thankful in everything?

Matthew Henry is a well-know Bible commentator. One day he was robbed and that evening made the following entry in his diary:


Let me be thankful---

first, because I was never robbed before

second, because although they took my wallet 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, not I who robbed

~ Matthew Henry
