But this will be your opportunity… (Matthew 10:18, NLT)
Handed over to the courts. Flogged with whips. Standing trial. I could think of better ways to spend a day.
But those same hardships brought Jesus’ disciples before governors and kings. It allowed them to share good news to those in power they would otherwise not even dream of reaching.
Instead of lamenting our suffering, let’s find our opportunities.
Father, in the midst of the challenges, open my eyes to see the opportunities before me.
