On The Other Side


A sick man turned to his doctor, as he was leaving the room 
after paying a visit, and said, "Doctor, I am afraid to die.
Tell me what lies on the other side." 

Very quietly the doctor said, "I don't know." 

"You don't know? You, a Christian man, do not know what is 
on the other side?" 

The doctor was holding the handle of the door, on the other 
side of which came a sound of scratching and whining, and as 
he opened the door a dog sprang into the room and leaped on 
him with an eager show of gladness. 

Turning to the patient, the doctor said, "Did you notice that 
dog? He had never been in this room before. He did not know 
what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was 
here, and when the door opened he sprang in without fear. I 
know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do 
know one thing: I know my Master is there, and that is enough. 
And when the door opens, I shall pass through with no fear, 
but with gladness."
