Bible Verse for Today
“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.” (1 Corinthians 13:11)
When a child is born, it is not expected of the child to start walking or talking immediately. The child can’t start taking solid food or start doing what an adult can do. The child must go through a process, stages of life before getting to become an adult. In this manner, everyone on this earth will go through the same process. You desire to be successful or to achieve something, but before you achieve that particular thing, there are stages you must go through. These stages are what prepare you for the next stage. Each stage has challenges or we can call it “tests.” It is like schooling before you can get to the next level, you will write an exam which will determine your readiness for the higher level.
When you go through a hard time, you don’t have to give up because it is an examination that you must pass to go to the next stage. Joseph went through hurdles, he didn’t give up because he knew he was going to a better place. What we need to do is to focus on Jesus as we go through each stage in life – by doing this, we become successful and achieve what we desire to achieve.
