We fight and squabble over windfalls. We fail to use them in justice and charity. We refuse forgiveness; we refuse to forgive and forget. We take what is not ours, we act like little children fighting over some toy, while God's watches sadly, his little gifts wasted, turned into moments of disunity and revenge rather than the acts of love he meant them to be.
This is why people like Mother Teresa and Katie Davis are such important examples for us. They are people who take everything: trials and windfalls, as gifts, precious gifts, not to be fought over, not to be squandered, but as means to extend and continue the Divine love and generosity.
Something to think about.
