We Need Both Strength and Weakness

Twitter

(This is an excerpt from the book The Gospel of Second Chances by Lloyd D. Newell.)

When confronted with our weaknesses and blemishes, we may be tempted to cover them up, hope that no one notices, blame others, or make excuses. We may not be proud of our weaknesses, but being aware and meek enough to accept responsibility for them is vital to our growth. Someday we hope that those we love will honor our memory and remember how we strove to accept the amazing and healing grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. They may be proud of all the times we were right and of all we accomplished, but they may be even more inspired by the times we admitted we were wrong, the times we stumbled and got back up, the times we realized we were blind but were willing to see that we needed a Savior.
