Blessings and Woes
One possible way of dividing or interpreting the blessings and the woes in today’s Gospel is whether they can either lead us to dependence on God or on ourselves.
Wealth, satisfaction, laughter, good reputation are good things. They become woes when we put our hearts on them or allow ourselves to depend on them, and not on God.
Sufferings in themselves are never easy. Yet, they can remind and challenge us to depend on God, who alone is true and lasting happiness.
