A Tall Order

hands-and-bible2 Corinthians 12:10 says, “That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.” 

Delight – to take great pleasure

Weaknesses – defect, the state of being weak

Insults – a gross indignity or injury to the body or one of its parts

Hardships – something that causes or entails suffering

Persecutions – harassing or punishing in a manner designed to injure, grieve, afflict, or annoy

Difficulties– controversy, disagreement, embarrassment, trouble

…easier said than done.
