a blessing or a lesson?

8612858076_47564f0217_zThere’s a quote that says, “We meet people for a reason. Either they’re a blessing or a lesson.” But it can also be both: That person’s a BLESSING because he/she has been a channel of God’s blessings, either tangible or not; that he/she becomes a blessing to you because of the love and care you receive from that person. Then, a LESSON also, for knowing someone who differs from you can make or break you; knowing and being with him/her can be God’s instrument of discipline and refinement.
We need each other. We aren’t perfect people. We are all broken people, but as one Casting Crowns’ song says, we can be broken together, that we may be whole by knowing more of God’s love through our relationships with other people.

You could be both a blessing and a lesson to somebody.
