Have you ever wondered what was Paul’s thorn in the flesh?
There have been many suggestions, but my best guess is that it was the Jews, who constantly hunted him down and tried to kill him. The Jews certainly fit the description of a messenger of Satan who buffeted or treated him with violence.
Yet, look what the Apostle Paul wrote a year or so after he wrote his letter to the Corinthians:
Even though the Jews may have been Paul’s thorn in the flesh, he loved them, felt they were his missionary field and was willing to die for them.
So, I believe we Christians need to look with Paul’s eyes at radical Democrats, leftists, socialists and others, who are trying to destroy the Christian heritage of our nation. We need to view them as our missionary field and be willing to die for them.
That is — if we want to love like Paul did, which if you think about it, is how much Jesus loved each of us when He took our places on the cross.
Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas. I am taking the holiday season off. See you in January.
