2 Corinthians 12:9-10 "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. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
Strange how what doesn't makes sense in our worldly nature is exactly the opposite of what God says. As a society, we started teaching our children that they were "special" in school; not telling them why they were special. Just telling them that they were special because they were them. Fast forward 15 years, now we have the most egocentric generations ever.
