The difference between a blessing and a curse is whether it draws us closer to God or leads us away. Grief is considered a curse, but if we draw closer to God through it, then it becomes a blessing. Success is regarded as a blessing, but if it draws us away from God, it is a curse.

Amen! To just remember this as I evaluate my actions, activities & things I invest time into.
