Adam began to move restlessly in his chair, assuming that the proceedings were now drawing to a close. The sooner they were all out of this cold, drab little office the better, he felt.
M r Holbrooke looked up once more and cleared his throat, as if he were about to announce who was to be left the Goya or the Hapsburg diamonds. The three surviving members of the Scott family sat in silence.
What could he have to add? Whatever it was, the solicitor had obviously pondered the final bequest several times, because he delivered the words like a well-versed actor, his eyes returning to the script only once.
Should he decide to open the envelope it must be on the condition that he will never divulge its contents to any other living person. He glanced towards his mother who looked shocked. Was it fear or was it distress? Everyone in the room remained seated, not quite sure what to do next. Once they had left the office and Adam had ensured his mother and sister were seated comfortably in the back of the family M orris M inor, he took his place behind the steering wheel.
No yellow lines in the streets of Appleshaw — yet, he thought. The only time Adam ever mentioned it to his sister she could throw no light on what the dispute might have been over. Adam put his foot on the brake as they reached a Tjunction at the end of the High Street. He turned right and continued to drive out of the village for a mile or so down a winding country lane before bringing the old M orris M inor to a halt.
Adam leapt out and opened the trellised gate whose path led through a neat lawn to a little thatched cottage. She stared up at the tall young man who reminded her so much of Gerald. The same dark hair and deep brown eyes, the same open, honest face, even the same gentle approach to everyone he came across. But most of all the same high standards of morality that had brought them to their present sad state.
Adam looked across at his sister and wondered how she would now cope with Saint Susan of Appleshaw.
M argaret had recently become engaged to a City stockbroker, and although the marriage had been postponed, she would soon be wanting to start a life of her own. Thank God her fiance had already put a down-payment on a little house only fourteen miles away.
After tea and a sad uninterrupted monologue from his mother on the virtues and misfortunes of their father, M argaret cleared away and left the two of them alone. They had both loved him in such different ways although Adam felt that he had never let Pa really know how much he respected him. Play Audio God has infinite wisdom of all things. He gloriously acts without revealing His purpose, seeking counsel, or exposing matters to public scrutiny.
Kings are much different. Since they understand very little in comparison, they should act only after diligent examination and deliberate consideration.
It would be folly for them to act in an arbitrary way, pretending to be wise as God. All human authorities should follow their prudent example.
He does not seek counsel or reveal these matters Job ; Rom , and there are many such things with Him Job ; Ps Only by revelation of Scripture and passage of time can you learn this will.
But you have been given His revealed will, the Bible, by which you are to govern your life and verify all decisions Deut The LORD deals privately with men, in their souls, and only rarely exposes them to the judgment of others. He often afflicts men in their beds and chastens them in their thoughts Job David knew how to use these private times with the Lord Ps ; ; ; ; ; God forgives you daily, of sins large and small, without exposing them to any.
For this you should be very thankful, and you should also see His great glory in such gracious concealment.
When you have opportunity to overlook and conceal personal offences against you, it is also your glory Pr ; But it is your duty, with the authority He may have given you in a particular office or role, to search out matters and deal with them prudently according to the wisdom of Scripture. A noble king must gather all the facts, call wise counselors, examine witnesses, review precedents, consider consequences, and deliberate before drawing a conclusion and making a judgment.
Solomon did very wisely in dealing with the two harlots I Kings God told Moses how authorities should deal with hearsay Deut They should inquire about it, make search, and ask diligently.

The same procedure was to be followed in matters of conflicting testimony Deut
