Excerpt

George Müller was born at Kroppenstaedt in Prussia in September 1805. His father, an excise collector, was over-generous in his gifts of money to George and his brothers, mistakenly believing it would teach them how to manage their financial affairs when they grew up. His generosity only encouraged them to spend recklessly and then to lie about their so-called savings. George figured that it was no fault to steal, but only to have his theft found out!

THE TURNING POINT
George had a friend named Beta who, one Saturday night in November 1825, invited him to a Christian meeting in a believer’s house. For some strange reason he immediately felt impelled to go along. It proved to be the turning point in Müller’s life. The little group led by a Mr Wagner sang, prayed, read the Scriptures and listened to the reading of a printed sermon. Müller felt awkward and uncertain of himself but he never forgot Wagner’s welcoming remark to him “Come as often as you please; house and heart are open to you”.
