    Presumption and Trust

    The position of the brother opposing “legal organization” was that we should “trust the Lord in these matters;” that “the Lord would not allow the world to take advantage of us, because the property was the Lord’s own property devoted to his service;” that “those pleading for legal organization showed lack of faith in the Lord,” etc., he seemed to forget what the Testimony had said about Satan’s counsel to his angels to keep money matters in their control, and out of the hands of his people.COOD 111.4

    On this brother’s case the Lord was pleased to speak to his people in these words: “I saw that in temporal matters Brother----—was too easy and negligent, He has lacked energy, considering it a virtue to leave to the Lord that which the Lord has left to him. It is only in cases of great emergency that the Lord interposes for us. We have a work to do, burdens and responsibilities to bear, and in thus doing we gain an experience.COOD 112.1
