Adversity Makes Us Strong

One way to measure one’s maturity in the “faith” is how a believer deals with his enemies.


Matthew 5:44

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;


It’s easy to harbor bitterness and hatred in our hearts when someone did us wrong. We tend to go away from people who we think would hurt us. But in the end, we get disappointed when almost everybody offended us. Adversity is just like weights pressuring us to strengthen our spiritual muscles. When we are used and overcome these adversities, we become sound in our emotions and perspectives in dealing with other people. Have we learned to be thankful for the people who are constantly annoying and irritating us? May God help us to understand His ways to be conformed in the image of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
