I love this quote

Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?

Those are wonderful points to think about.

I've been thinking about this same thing. When I pray, I ask for God to help me with all of those things. I never really thought about it, but I think you make some really good points. God blesses us with opportunities to become better people. He doesn't just make us more patient, and more courageous, and closer to our families. We have to work for it, and He gives us the opportunities to improve ourselves.

Thanks for sharing, Wayne. You've given me lots to think about.
