Making Weakness Perfect
8 I asked the Lord three times about this, that it would depart from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is enough for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
It is in bearing our weakness with compassion, patience, and without expecting all our ills to go away that we function best in a Kingdom where the insignificant, the outcasts and everyday life are the basic coordinates. The Kingdom is in our midst.
While this shouldn't serve as an excuse to not work to become our best and most authentic selves, it does give us hope that there is grace to help us in our weaknesses.
May you find comfort and strength in this beautiful knowledge. May you seek grace and God's perfection in all of your weaknesses. And may the grace and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you now and always. Amen.
