And his disciples asked him “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be made manifest in him.”
When misfortunes and afflictions come in life, we often think we are responsible, that God is punishing us. But this is not how God operates. Often these are opportunities to do good. Together with God we can make lemonade out of lemons.
FATHER IN HEAVEN, WHEN TRAGEDY STRIKES, OPEN OUR EYES TO THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THY WILL. BE WITH US AND GIVE US COURAGE AND STRENGTH TO OVERCOME. AMEN.
