"Be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect." (Matthew 5:48)

*Constraints and Weaknesses*

        Today's first reading came from 2 Corinthians 12. Three times Paul begged the Lord to remove a thorn in the flesh that had been given to him, but the Lord said to him, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness." This is a powerful, profound statement. It's when we acknowledge our weaknesses that God enters to make us strong. The Lord surely will not help those who think they are strong and do not need his help. And if God's grace is sufficient for us, then we truly have nothing to complain about. Anyone who is not satisfied with God will surely not be satisfied with anything else and remain unhappy.
