Guinness: success and failure

Thursday, January 7, 2021
    That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
    —2 Corinthians 12:10 (NIV)
    On the one hand, in matters of the spirit, nothing fails like success. On the other hand, in matters of the spirit, nothing succeeds like failure.
    ... Os Guinness (b. 1941), Dining with the Devil, Grand Rapids, Mich. Hourglass Books, 1993, p. 89 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 12:10; Matt. 19:23-24; Luke 22:59-62; Jas. 5:1
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have shown us the strength in humility.
