3 We put no stumbling block in anyone’s path, so that our ministry will not be discredited. 4 Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; 5 in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; 6 in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; 7 in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; 8 through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors; 9 known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; 10 sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything. 2 Cor 6:3-10
“My Children, Walk in the light despite your circumstances so that you will not only have victory but you will be a witness and a minister to others around you. Do not be a stumbling block to those that do not know Christ for the enemy will use every opportunity to shine the light on your ungodly behavior and weaknesses. Then the unbeliever will not be jealous of what you possess and will even mock you for your faith. Use every obstacle in your life to be a testimony to God’s goodness and faithfulness and an opportunity to spread the Gospel. Whether or not your situation improves or not, your faith will grow stronger and the love I have for you will carry you through. Rejoice, my children and take your rightful place in the heavenlies.” This is the Word of the Lord.
