Paradoxes of a Man of God - Philip C. Brewer



Paradoxes of a Man of God


Strong enough to be weak;
Successful enough to fail;
Busy enough to take time;
Wise enough to say 'I don't know';
Serious enough to laugh;
Rich enough to be poor;
Right enough to say 'I'm wrong';
Compassionate enough to discipline;
Conservative enough to give freely;
Mature enough to be childlike;
Righteous enough to be a sinner;
Important enough to be last;
Courageous enough to fear God;
Planned enough to be spontaneous;
Controlled enough to be flexible;
Free enough to endure captivity;
Knowledgeable enough to ask questions;
Loving enough to be angry;
Great enough to be anonymous;
Responsible enough to play;
Assured enough to be rejected;
Stable enough to cry;
Victorious enough to lose;
Industrious enough to relax;
Leading enough to serve.
