Most of us have dreamed of having amazing wealth and incredible influence, but we need to be reminded that vast amounts of money and power ruin the unprepared. You may think winning the lottery would solve your problems, but it might just expose, deepen and escalate them.
Have you noticed? Most of us are much better able to handle success after we have tasted failure. The hard lessons learned through the tough times ready us to deal with better days building into our lives needed virtues such as grace, dependence, and perspective. Bad time produce good things in us that mold us into the type of people God can trust to handle more good things. Dave Earley
