Don’t miss this encouragement in the heart of the second reading of today’s liturgy.
“My grace is enough for you: my power is at its best in weakness” 1 Cor 12
Our human frailty and sin, when acknowledged honestly, becomes our capacity for God’s power. While our human achievements and successes might give us moments of satisfaction, our deepest joy comes in honestly facing our weakness and vulnerability and depending totally on the strength of God.
We know this strength in our human relationships as well. Sharing our successes might be ok among colleagues, but friendships flourish when weakness is shared.
Take this fact of faith as your mantra for the day, and know it to be the personal message from Jesus to you: “my grace is enough for you: my power is at its best in weakness”.
