A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing toÂ leave the examination room and said,Â Â ‘Doctor, I am afraid to die.Â Â Â Tell me what lies on the other side.’Â Â Very quietly, the doctor said, ‘I don’t know.’Â Â Â Â
‘You don’t know?Â You’re aÂ Christian man,Â Â and don’t know what’s on the other side?’Â
The doctor was holding the handle of the door;Â Â on the other side came a sound of scratching and whining,Â and as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the roomÂ Â and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.Â Â Â Â
Turning to the patient, the doctor said,Â Â ‘Did you notice my dog?Â Â Well, he’s never been in this room before.Â Â He didn’t know what was inside here.Â He knew nothing except that his master was here,Â Â Â Â
And when the door opened,Â he sprang in without fear.Â Â I know little of what is on the other side of death,Â Â But I do know one thing…Â Â Â
I know my Master is there and that is enough.’
