Lesser Men than You
Lesser men than us have become Saints.
The Saints are an extremely diverse group of people and among them are men and women, who when compared to us, are less skilled, less talented, less experienced, poor, and illiterate. There are some who lived during much harder times, who didn’t have the resources that we do.
On paper, we are far better off.
But, they’re the ones in Heaven, so in reality, they’re the ones better off.
How is this possible? There’s a universal answer for every Saint — they knew they were lesser, they knew they were small, and most importantly, they knew they were dependent on God.
While the world sees this type of attitude as weakness, it was what gave them strength.
“For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10
When we feel like it’s all too much, and that we can’t go on, we should remember that others have gone before us. They’ve shown us the way. And, it’s not by our own power and strength, but in our humility and trust in God that we can follow suit.
