This week's reflection talks about the "busyness" of this time of year.
Reflection of the Week - 3 July 2019
Posted in Faith
'Therefore, to keep me from being too elated, a thorn was given me in the flesh' 2 Cor.12:7b.
I don't know the nature of Paul's 'thorn'; an illness or a person. Today, as I interact with a variety of personalities, I might encounter at least one 'thorn'. Someone who could challenge my thinking or behaviour.
I must accept that even those who are not in agreement with me, or don't share my passion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, are also children of God.
I am resolved, with the help of God, to remain humble, gracious and forgiving in the face of challenging personalities.
