“We should not be ungrateful to God our Good Father, Who has endowed all His creatures with various gifts, because He knows what each one of us needs so that we will not be harmed. But we often act like little children who complain because the Father has not given us a copper coin or two, as he has to our siblings, when in fact he has given us paper money. We imagine that what was given to us is nothing because we take it to be only paper, while the metal coins given to our siblings seem more attractive, and so we cry and are indignant with our Good Father.”
