    Cursed By Blessings?

    PROVERBS 10:22 KJV

    22 -The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no
    sorrow with it.

    What we might consider "blessings" don't always help people.
    Sometimes they hurt.

    We don't always know what is best for us. Often, what we think
    we want turns out to be a big mistake.

    Consider the case of two girls: one extremely beautiful -- the
    other quite plain looking. Because of her natural beauty, the
    one becomes totally self-absorbed. Thinking herself superior,
    she grows haughty and proud, and, although rich and famous, has
    no true friends.

    She selfishly only seeks her own welfare and gives no thought
    to other's desires or happiness.

    As she grows older and less attractive, she cannot live with
    not being the center of attention. Lonely and depressed, she
    finally takes her life.

    The other girl, not being endowed with any great natural
    beauty, is not tempted to be proud and haughty. She is forced
    to develop in other ways.

    She, being humble, is willing and ready to help others and
    gains many friends. Because she could not rely on her natural
    abilities in life, she was forced to turn to God and seek His
    help. With God's life and love manifesting through her, she was
    able to marry a godly man, and they raised a fine family
    together and enjoyed a long and happy life.

    Which girl was really blessed?

    Just remember: what you think you want is not always what you
    would really want. Be thankful for what you have and who you

    God Bless . Mike72
  2. That is inspiring. :)
    I've thought about this so many times. My family had been living a really good life until we were touched by God. If it weren't for the small sufferings, I would have never thought of serving God. Infact, I would have been making fun of God's people. I see my sorrow as a blessing and Im really thankful to Jesus, for allowing my family go through it. :) :)

    1 Peter 3:17
    It is better, if it is God's will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.

    Grace be with you.
