Hmmmm ..?? Without “finances” how did she support her other nuns (I don’t recall ever seeing them in dirty or torn clothing - so where did she get the finances to purchase the uniforms ..??); how did she feed the poor; how did she provide them with anything without the finances to purchase the items she needed.
I dare you to explain that!
So when God, Himself, says in Deut. 30:9 that He “... will prosper the work of your hand, the fruit of your body, your cattle and your land, that doesn’t mean to you that God wants to bless you financially ..??
How do you explain that scripture as saying God does not want you to have finances ..??
But .. it comes down to this .. if you don’t want to be blessed, God will not force it upon you.
What I have been trying state from the very beginning has to do with God blessing a person financially for the greedy selfish purposes of being wealthy. I believe God blesses us all in His own way, whether is be financially, spiritually, health wise etc.. And that we are to use these blessings to help those who a not as fortunate as we are.
I have a mentally handicapped child that I consider a blessing, as he has thought me more about love and acceptance than any one else could have possibly done which has made me much more sensitive to others with disabilities, so instead of my son being a burden I consider him a a blessing! And God has blessed much more than I deserve!
