Counting Coins

I tried an experiment to myself one time putting coins on my left palm facing up. While I'm looking on the objects, I asked myself, "What do I truly see?". Then I mumbled, "Is it the coins? Or my hand? Or both?". At first, I only noticed the coins. Then, I realized the importance of my hand.

In that experiment, the value of the coins represents of the problems while the importance of the hand represents of the blessings. Looking in different views in life may help us recognize and notice various things that we need to see through.

There are instances that we sometimes feel nobody loves us nor cares for us when being persecuted by other people. We may feel like being hammered in all corners and may only see the coin of problems not knowing we already have a hand of blessings. Our hand is bigger than the coin. Counting only the coins and not realizing the importance of our hand is like welcoming our expected problems and persecutions that are entering in our front door without checking the back door and the windows of blessings. Sometimes we may feel like this being hopeless and without noticing what we already have.

If we have coins of problems, we must not count it nor save it. We must spend it and use it like using our problems to strengthen ourselves. The longer the coins stay in our hand, the higher possibility that it will increase. Seeing the logic, we must learn to count our blessings and save it instead of counting coins.


  1. good point of view you have there

    1. Thanks for the comment. I really appreciate it.

  2. Some people don't appreciates the blessings they have.They focus more on a little problem than appreciating what they already have.
