I’m no superman

God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength. I Cor. 1:25b

The guy working the front desk observed that the gym is like a phone booth where people walk in like Superman and walk out like Clark Kent. We go to God with our pride and aggression and come out clothed in grace and mercy.  Responding with the kindness and gentleness of Christ may look unassuming and mild-mannered but it is fuelled by a power that trumps speeding bullets, evil villains, and even the tribulations of everyday life.

Lord, help! I’m no superman.
