II Corinthians 10-13
Paul continues to face the trials of dealing with the Corinthian people. He tells them that he will only boast in Christ and not in himself. He declares that it is God who is worthy of all the glory and not we ourselves. He talks about the thorn in his flesh and the malady that humbles him before God. The thorn was a way that he had to be dependent on God. Lastly, Paul always encouraged the people of Corinth to live on. This scripture should indicate to us that even if we are faithful to serve God in all things we are bound to face opposition. Paul was a great servant of God and yet he faced the difficulty of dealing with hard hearted people. Let us be about supporting each other towards spiritual maturity.
