The Bridge and the Axe

One day, a hunter was caught in a storm at the middle of the forest. When the rain subsided, he decided to return to his house. However, to his dismay, he found out that the bridge leading to his house had been destroyed by the storm. With no one to turn to but God, the hunter prayed, "Lord, please give me a bridge."

Just after a minute, an angel holding an axe flow towards him and gave him the axe.

"Angel," the hunter protested, "there must be a mistake. I prayed for a bridge, not an axe."

"God can easily give you a bridge if He wants to," the angel answered. "But then God does not desire to spoil you. He is giving you this axe so you can cut wood and build a bridge."

With that, the angel left.
