2 Corinthians but he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ; for whenever I am weak, then I am strong.”
St. Bonaventure once wrote, “The world makes choices in one way, Christ in another, choosing to employ our weakness rather than our strengths, and our failures far more than our successes.”
Question for reflection:
What would it look like for you today to allow Christ to use your failure? How would it FEEL to allow Christ to use your weakness? Are you willing and able to take the risk?
