Positive Perspective

Today's reading: 2 Corinthians 11:16-33

Reading the list of persecutions that Paul experienced as a result of following and proclaiming Christ gave me a gut check this morning. My "hardships" have never even come close to what Paul endured. And rather than complaining or looking for sympathy (like I often do), Paul talks about his suffering with the intent of further proclaiming and boasting about God.

How often do you respond like Paul when you go through difficult times? What hardship have you experienced or are you experiencing right now that you can use to highlight and boast about God? Tami
