Daily Digest #58

Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. —John 9:3

We are often discouraged by our limitations. Many of these limitations are physical in nature, which humans have no power to control. But having heard and witnessed numerous stories of these people, we are encouraged to turn our weakness into His strength... I commend those who are spiritually strong in spite of their physical disabilities. Those who just act on the task they have for the day and praise God for the blessings they have received. They truly are a reflection of God's grace and love. We, who often complain about the slightest discomfort in our lives, are put to shame. We might say "i just can't do it" or "i'm just not able" or even "he/she can't do that", but who are we to say such things? The Bible says, God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of love, power and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7).

For this, may we assess ourselves. Let us pray that we may be able to overcome our fears and surpass our limitations. We are all urged to bring the best out of each other. At the same time, may we develop patience and faith for those who still could not overcome their fears and doubts. May we also pray for those who have been badly hit by recent calamities (China, Myanmar, India, and other countries at war). May we pray for each other always.
