“...we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”


“...there was given me a thorn in my flesh...Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

Paul the apostle,
2 Cor 12

The Principle: (7)
