For some say, “Paul’s letters are demanding and forceful, but in person he is weak, and his speeches are worthless!” – 2 Cor 10:10
It seems like it’s human nature to focus on our weakness. We often look at ourselves and only see where we fall short and mess up. Imagine if Paul had focused only on his weakness. This verse talks about Paul not being that great at giving speeches.
What if Paul had only focused on the areas he was weak in? What if he had not focused on his gifts like writing? If he did that, we might not have a lot of the New Testament.
It’s a challenge to not spend all of our time focusing on the areas we’re weak in, but rather spend our time focusing on the areas we’re strong in. Don’t let your weaknesses hold you back from doing the things that God has called you to do. If you learn to rely on God and His help, you’ll always succeed in whatever you put your hand to.
