How Does Providence Develop Us?

528.02Question: You claim that we have no freewill, that we are puppets in the hands of the Creator, so how can we develop the point in the heart?

Answer: How does a baby develop even  though he does not know anything about his development and does not ask about it? He does something, breaks something, runs about, and this is how he grows.

It is the same with us. We have been placed in a room with nine friends and now let’s develop together. It does not matter whether you run around like kids from one corner of the room to another or whether you play ball or play with building blocks, actions that are seemingly unimportant.

These actions, however, are not worthless, this is how providence develops children. Imagine that we too, when we come to such a group of “kids” in the ten and engage in seemingly silly actions, we will begin to develop. But we will not under different conditions.
