WORDLY EVENTS ARE BEST SPIRITUALLY
Everybody wants only good events to happen in one’s life. Good things are either materialistic or spiritual. Materialistic or worldly good events again can be categorized as immediate and delayed. One is more concerned with immediate good events or good results. For example, if one has to catch a train or flight, travels across the city and reaches in time, this is an immediate good event. However, if one is caught in the traffic jam and misses the train or flight and later comes to know that the particular train/flight met an accident, one thinks that it was good for him to have missed the train/flight. This is an example of delayed good event in the long run.Although as human beings one desires only immediate good events, may it be materialistic or spiritual but God bestows one only what is destined for him and good spiritually, may it be immediate or in the long run. Any worldly event may or may not be of immediate good for one but it is always good for one in the long run and for his spiritual benefit.God is never at fault. It is one’s incapacity to grasp the meaning underlying His acts and His will.
