What Is Really Useful To Us?

Nothing that happens to us is contrary to the will of Providence, and everything that is sent to us by God is for our good and the salvation of our soul.  Even if it does not seem beneficial at the present moment, we shall understand later that it is what is willed by God, and not what we ourselves desire, that is useful to us. 

St. Nilus Sorsky
