Today, my message is entitled “Weak Yet Strong.” We’re going to be looking at the topics of weakness and strength. Which would you rather be, weak or strong? I think most of us would say strong, wouldn’t we. Strength is celebrated in our society. The strong win in sports, the weak are eliminated. The strong rise to the top in areas of leadership in many segments of our society.
And what do the strong often do? They let you know about their accomplishments, how strong they are and in comparison how weak others are. When we compare ourselves to the strong around us, we may feel weak and discouraged. If only I was as strong as so and so, then life would be so much better. But what is God’s view? In this series, we are learning to see as God sees. Man looks at the external, but God looks on the heart. What looks strong on the outside, may not be so strong at all in the inside.
