Godís weakness is stronger than human strength.

In his novel, The Great World, David Malouf writes about two ex-servicemen, Digger and his city mate. Their wives noticed that when occasionally they met, the visits would be long. Sometimes fishing together, conversation was sparse. They were POWs together on the Burma railroad: mud, sickness, starvation, often no boats, and sharp rocks.

Digger, drowning in mud, had lost hope. The city mate, at great risk, pulled him out, and carried him to a murky creek infested with blood-sucking fish. He cleaned away the mud from Diggerís gangrenous foot and the fish did the rest. His friend was saved. In Corinthians, we hear that, for the believer, there is strength beyond any personís ability, and this comes from the power and wisdom of the Cross of Christ. Lord, be this power and strength to all those we remember this day.
