what you are equipped to handle is to go through it.

We all get beat up.  We all fail.  We all fall down.  But it’s resilient people who are changing the world.  It’s not the people walking through life unscathed who are shaping eternity.  The people untouched by adversity aren’t shaping eternity; it’s being shaped by dogged resilient people, who, under constant fire from the enemy, just keep coming.  They refuse to quit!  That’s the kind of person God is in the business of shaping: resilient warriors.
Note: True...
that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. (Hebrews 12:1-3 ESV)
Note: This is so true...
We must advocate for unlovable kids even when they don’t deserve it.  If we don’t break into their lives with the love of Christ, they will without doubt break into our lives through aberrant rampages like Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.  In the end, society always loses when the church ousts troubled kids.
