Turn Everything to Profit
Do what a shopkeeper does in regard to his business; turn everything to profit. Even though it be only an insect sting or a pin prick, a little eccentricity of your neighbor or some unintentional slight, the loss of some money, some little anxiety, a little bodily weariness, or a slight pain in your limbs. Turn everything to profit, as the grocer does in his shop, and you will soon become rich before God...
At the least annoyance say, 'thank you, Lord; Your will be done."
