thought for the day from Esteban Julio Vázquez‘s facebook page:
Dear People Anxious to “Claim God’s Blessings”:
Please be mindful of Christ’s words: “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil things about you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because you have a great reward in heaven! The prophets who lived before you were persecuted in the same way” (St Matthew 5:11-12).
So be careful what you ask for: God’s blessings may not look like what you expect.
