3 Benefits of Being Weak

  1. You have a greater dependence on God.

“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10

  1. It prevents pride.
  2. It expands our capacity to minister.

“who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” 2 Corinthians 1:4

You can impress people from a distance; you can only influence people up close.

The pain from the past is the power of the present.

Christianity is not about solving all of your problems.
