After Anne cried herself to sleep—feeling friendless and alone—a soft-hearted, kindly old bachelor spoke up and said he wanted her. While Anne slept, Marilla made plans to take Anne back, but Matthew quietly put his foot down. Marilla said no, but Matthew stubbornly said yes. Marilla asked, “What good would she be to us?” And Matthew answered, “We might be some good to her.”

Matthew’s quiet intervention is a picture of God’s work in our lives, for our salvation and for our good. God is a “father to the fatherless” who “sets the lonely in families” (Psalm 68 NIV). Before we knew Him, He knew us. When we were powerless to save ourselves, He intervened. While we were “still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8 NIV).
