Strength is for service

Edited from:

There's a song that empowers even the smallest and weakest of us. We have the power of choice and the power of God working in and through us:

My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken...
We are God's eyes, God's hands, God's mind
We are God's eyes, God's hands, God's heart
       - Jewel, "Hands"

(See also lyrics video here)

     "We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up. For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: 'The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.'
      - Paul to the Romans, 15:1-3

     "For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."
      - Paul to the Romans, 15:4-6


  1. This must include the patience on the weakness of others. That eventually, the Apex will be reached that God will soon sit on that Judgement Seat taking into account what we have done (both willed and acted / commission, including those we avoided / omission) to the least of our brothers and sisters.

    Great Teci!

  2. Amen bro. Thanks too for that insight!
