I lost my money last Christmas eve…
…but God repaid me with a more glorifying gift.
Do you know the feeling when you lose something valuable to you? It’s very uncomfortable, isn’t it? Like you want to blame other people for your misfortune, or curse God for making your life miserable. And later you have this trending “what ifs” in mind. You feel like every ounce of happiness is sucked out of you.
But the thing is I know better than that. Last Christmas eve, I learned a great lesson about life. I stopped having grudges. Finally, for the first time, I come to understand that sometimes, our misfortunes does not mean punishment or karma to us…I believe it is necessary in God’s plans---a plan of making everyone happy especially on Christmas day.
Yes. Someone made me realize that. Doing a great deed of kindness to other people requires sacrifice. It will always mean giving…sharing…losing…And I couldn’t be more grateful to be a lucky recipient of such a selfless act.
So to God and to you, thank you.
(P.S. Sai, i will be forever indebted to you...)
