Fortunes of Misfortune

“Alas, how often we show ingratitude for the gifts of misfortune. How frequently we display little appreciation for sorrow, disappointment, and failure. Wrapped in darkness, delivered with promptness, and greeted by disbelief, misfortunes are the fortunes missed by the proud, careless, and ungrateful. Through them we acquire wisdom, sympathy, humility, and a healthy dependence on God. Tomorrow’s fortunes are enveloped in today’s misfortunes. Let’s redeem this hidden wealth by developing attitudes of gratitude for life’s vicissitudes.” -Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
