You’ve said it before:
If only I had more money! If only I had more free time! If only I had more enthusiasm!
If only that one thing more were like we think we need it, we could do great things, be the person we want to be, achieve the things we know we are capable of…
Paul the Apostle was no stranger to this line of thinking, but his secret in dealing with want and disappointment was not to embrace bitterness, but to involve himself in something that would change his life forever. This week, as we look at 22 Corinthians 12:2-10 we can determine for ourselves – would we look at Paul and say “What a Weirdo!” or would we know better.
