MISTLETOE Phoradendron serotinum

Second Corinthians 4:15 reads, “For all things are for your sakes that the grace which is spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God.”

The phrase “all things” is a great claim and it is true. What is uncertain is how you respond to the nature of this earthly life. As you face adversity may you be able to say, “Thank you, God, for your presence and power in my life.” The truth is, we often grow spiritually more through our walk with the Lord amid difficulties than through times of pleasure and success.
