The only difference between stumbling blocks and
steppingstones is the way in which we use them.
We preach Christ crucified,
a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles,
but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks,
Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
1 Corinthians 1:23-24

One of the secrets of life is to make
stepping-stones out of stumbling blocks.
The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.
This is the LORD's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted;
He rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous:
but the LORD delivers him out of them all.

A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life.
It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster.
The treasure of our being in this world
is also produced by an injured life.
If we had not been wounded,
if we had not been injured,
then we will not produce the pearl.
~ Stephan Hoeller
We have this treasure in jars of clay,
to show that the real power belongs to God and not to us.
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed….
2 Corinthians 4:7-8
