When you hear or see this quote, what does it make you think of? I am sure we are all familiar with the concept of seeing the glass as half full or half empty. As a Christian how should we respond when looking at various situations we came across in life? Do we look for an opportunity to serve, glorify, and teach God and Christ or do we allow the devil to cloud our minds with thoughts of doubt or disbelief?
Consider what Christ had to say about the coming of what would be difficult times and how His followers should view them.
As you can see, His followers had a chance to see defeat and despair but Christ wanted them to recognize it would be an opportunity to testify to them.
As Christians we have a wonderful message to share with the world and the opportunity to do see can appear to us in many different forms, we must have an open mind and heart to recognize them and act.
Let us also not forget that even when times are extremely rough and we feel like giving up, just like Paul, We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
