A man never stands as tall as
    when he kneels to help a child.

  But Jesus…took a child and put him by his side
      and said to them, "Whoever receives this child
in my name receives me, and whoever receives me
          receives Him who sent me.
For he who is least among you all
         is the one who is great."
Luke 9:45-48

Growing Through Life's Difficulties
Problems will either stop you or stretch you.

Most of the times we want to use our faith
        to get rid of a problem
             with Divine delivering power,
but we forget about
        Divine enabling power,
                  to enable us to endure.

You are not just going through, are growing through.

Count it all joy, my brothers,
       when you meet trials of various kinds,
for you know that the testing of
        your faith produces steadfastness.
James 1:2-3
