If find it funny ppl think they are special and blessed by God because they are living comfortably...See my sig, it might give you a clue to the
That is not nice. I NEVER said that. OR assumed it.
All the people you mentioned worked for what they have. They earned it. Blessed by God? I would like to hope so, but I have no idea.
What I do know is that contrary to what you believe, I was once dirt poor. I lived in my car, and scrounged around to get enough money for a burrito
from taco bell, which I could only typically buy once a week, twice if I was lucky. The rest of the money I had, I spent on gas to get me to school
and back. It sucked. So I totaly gave my life to God. I said "here you go, Im obviously not doing a very good job, so my life is yours do with it
what you see fit." After that, I continued to work my ars off to make what I could. Next thing I know I met my husband. Things started working
out, and I was able to eat every day, and make ends meet (barely). Then one day, I had $20 in my pocket. It was all the money I had to my name. I
saw someone who needed it more. SO, with total faith, I gave them the $20. That was the only money I had, and wouldnt be getting anymore for a
while, but I knew what it was like to scrounge around for food. Later on with in 24 hours, I came across more money.
What I am trying to say, is that if you look out for his other children, and take nothing for granted, you will always be taken care of. If you
always give selflessly, you will always be taken care of.
The life I have now is the life God gave me. If something were to happen, and tomorow, we had no money, food, no home, nothing....I would not worry.
Because I KNOW that he will take care of me.
I might be living comfy right now, but I have no attachment to material objects. I know that If I had no THING, I would still be happy, maybe even
more so. Because I KNOW what life is about. I KNOW what is important, and cars, cell phones, bling, isnt it. It is very difficult for a person who
is filthy rich to understand that. To be honest, I dont think they would be filthy rich if they did. If I was given $50 mil today, I would only keep
enough to make ends meet. The rest would go to those who NEED it.
People are not blessed with money. They are blessed with understanding, wisdom, and love.
