Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has been attacked and mocked before by his political opponents for being in a wheelchair, so it’s no surprise he had the perfect response this week when someone suggested his disability was caused by God.

Abbott, 62, was left paralyzed from the waist down after a 1984 freak accident involving an oak tree falling on him during a jog in Houston. He has used a wheelchair ever since.

On Friday, he tweeted an inspirational video of a young man in a wheelchair climbing up an indoor wall with the caption: “Never quit. Never give up. Overcome any challenge.”

But then someone tweeted back to the governor: “God put you in a wheelchair Greg.” The Governor’s response was simply awesome.

Not one to shy away from his Christian faith — or an argument — Abbott explained: “God didn’t cause the accident that left me paralyzed, but He did help me persevere over that enormous challenge.”

He added: “I’m a testament that the glory of God is revealed by a young man’s back being broken in half and still rising up to be Governor of Texas. With God all is possible.”
