“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.”
(Elder St Paisios ‘Passions and Virtues’)
