Your good fortune lies not only in what blessings God gives you, but in how you receive them.
Receive all your blessings with a heart-felt thanks to God. Look for them, count them, recognize them, and most of all appreciate them as a gift from God.
All this I do for the sake of the gospel, so that I too may have a share in it. Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win.
1 Corinthians 9:23-24 (NABRE)
