Paul’s… I mean, my thorn.

2 Corinthians 12:6-10 talks about Paul’s thorn and how even when he’s weak, he’s also strong. Anyway, I’ve never thought about what this could mean until a little bit ago. Thorns are so tiny. So many people have probably tried to guess what Paul’s thorn was and everything too since he doesn’t specifically say what it is. But here are some more thoughts, if God wanted us to know what that thorn was, he would’ve told us and if God told us what the thorn was, we probably wouldn’t have any kind of opportunity to relate to it. Sometimes, I don’t know about you, but I can disassociate myself from problems because they’re not problems that I understand. And when we don’t understand someone else’s problem sometimes, we see the craziness in that person and not the problem. But, honestly like everyone has a problem that doesn’t make sense. That’s probably why it was harder for Paul to describe it. That’s probably why he tried to pray for God to take it away three times. Little things can hurt bad. Thorns are little. But that little thing that seems to set us back sometimes helps us remember that we need Jesus. Our thorns take us to the throne of God. Have a great rest of the day 🙂
