So You Had A Bad Day?

Frustrated“I’ve worked much harder, been jailed more often, beaten up more times than I can count, and at death’s door time after time. I’ve been flogged five times with the Jews’ thirty-nine lashes, beaten by Roman rods three times, pummeled with rocks once. I’ve been shipwrecked three times, and immersed in the open sea for a night and a day. In hard traveling year in and year out, I’ve had to ford rivers, fend off robbers, struggle with friends, struggle with foes. I’ve been at risk in the city, at risk in the country, endangered by desert sun and sea storm, and betrayed by those I thought were my brothers. I’ve known drudgery and hard labor, many a long and lonely night without sleep, many a missed meal, blasted by the cold, naked to the weather.” – 2 Corinthians 11:23-37

Well, I don’t want to minimize anyone’s pain (I have had my share), but – WOW – when I read about what Paul endured for the sake of the cross of Christ, I am amazed and humbled.  I don’t have much of a devotional thought today, but just read this text and ask the Lord to minister to you…

be blessed
