Lightbulb On Suffering

Philip Yancy gives an insightful message in today's Daily bread
http://odb.org/2010/06/17/why-suffer/



Quote:
The poor, the hungry, the mourners, and those who suffer are blessed (Matt. 5:3-6) because their lack of self-sufficiency is obvious to them every day. They must turn somewhere for strength. People who are rich, successful, and beautiful may go through life relying on their natural gifts. But people who are needy, dependent, and dissatisfied with life are more likely to welcome God’s free gift of love.
Matthew 5:1-12

Thanks, Chemar!
This is similar to "The Spirituality of Imperfection."
We were made imperfect in order to seek to commune with, and to rely upon, our Creator!
Our Creator abides within each of us and often show us love through our communities.
My Creator has ministered to me through you, just now.
Pretty cool, eh? Thanks so much!
To open hearts!
To Community!
To Creator!
