Sufferings and Blessings

Every Cross1 that we face in our life and every burden2 that is laid down on our shoulders,  has a Blessing3 attached to it–  if it is lived with Faith and Humility in Christ.

1. Physical sufferings viz. physical disability; illnesses etc; the difficulties and pain that time and circumstances bring in our life.
In the weakness of our flesh and our will, the sins that we commit against God. Our daily sins burden our soul. We often ignore this Cross and do not care much for our soul.

2. Duties and responsibilities  towards our family members, especially old Parents; those who are sick; those who are physically disabled.
In fact, caring responsibilities should not be treated as a burden but should be handled with Christian love.

3. God reserves a unique Blessing for each one's life.
