2 Corinthians 12:9
‘But He answered me, ‘My grace is always more than enough for you, and My power finds its full expression through your weakness.’
Have you read Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s Antifragile – Things that gain from disorder? This is my reading material at the moment and I am enjoying this book thoroughly.
I always watch and observe people, listening to what they say. I heard a man say “it’s unfair.” I want to take you to 2 Corinthians 12 verse 9 and let’s look at what God says “My grace is always more than enough for you.” Yes, I listened to the chap telling me about his problem and because he needs to actually do something about it, “it’s unfair.” I think people today are very fortunate and they have so many resources available.
I think this man has an “entitlement” attitude and when he needs to do something for himself, “it’s unfair.”
My point is this, God has given each one of us grace for today, to face all our problems and challenges. This man’s only challenge right now is to drive 130km to see someone to help him complete a document in person so that he may receive compensation for not being at work.
God instructs us each and every day through His Word, the only problem I believe we have is “not reading this Word.”
Heavenly Father, I am not standing in judgement over this person I used as an example of being fragile. I just want to point out that we don’t know Your word and feed on it each day. For lack of wisdom and understanding is rife and we miss out on so many good and wonderful opportunities. Thank You, Lord, for each day’s mercies which You give each one of us. In the Holy Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen
