My Father's House Magnificent
John 14:1-4
Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in me.…

A New Zealand chief who visited England was remarkable for the deep spirituality of his mind and his constant delight in the word of God. One day he was taken to see a beautiful mansion near London. The gentleman who took him expected to see him greatly astonished and charmed with its magnificence, but it seemed to excite little or no admiration in his mind. Wondering how this could be, he began to point out to him its grandeur. Tamahana heard all silently, then, looking round, said, "My Father's house is finer than this." "Your father's house!" thought the gentleman, who knew that his father's home was but a poor mud cottage. But Tamahana went on to speak in his own touching strain of the "many mansions" of the redeemed.

(W. Baxendale.)
