Everyone knows the saying "your greatest strength can be your greatest weakness." Anecdotally I find this to be very true. I think you can also change the phrase to say "your greatest blessing can be your greatest curse." Most of us can hop right to the examples of lottery winners, rags to riches sports stars, and the like who have all received an immense blessing only to have their heaping helping rain down destruction upon them. But as I have been reflecting, I think I have had too much of an extremist attitude when thinking about such things. I don't think it's merely the extremely blessed who need to worry about their blessings bringing destruction, it's those of us who are blessed at all.
