We all have strengths, but we also have weaknesses as well. The temptation exists to look at others weaknesses and ignore ours. As Christ tells us, “Remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter in your brother’s eye.” – [Luke 6:42]
So, what are our weaknesses? We need to discover them, so that we can remove them. Of course, some are like wooden beams and are sometimes best removed piece by piece. We grow attached to our weaknesses, not in that they are our weaknesses, but that we know the occasional good feeling that we get from it.
Most often, we have allowed the weaknesses to come in and we think them much smaller than they actually are. The longer that you live with something the less inclined you are to remove it. It may be annoying at times, but we grow accustomed to our weaknesses.
To help us identify and remove our weaknesses, we must first go to prayer. God created us, so He knows the best way to fix us. He can give us insights and the fortitude to fight our weaknesses. Many are scared to know themselves and their weaknesses. Let us not be among them.
