Has anything ‘ugly’ been exposed in you during this time? What might the Lord be teaching you about that? What sort of opportunity for growth does that present?
Take a look at a couple other passages of scripture where Jesus gracefully “exposes.” What is being exposed and how does it change that person?
· Mark 10:17-27
· Matthew 14:22-33
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to … comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes; the oil of joy instead of mourning; and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. (Isaiah 61)
