Day 231: Dust Yourself Off...

To the latter it is an aroma [wafted] from death to death [a fatal odor, the smell of doom]; to the former it is an aroma from life to life [a vital fragrance, living and fresh]. And who is qualified (fit and sufficient) for these things? [Who is able for such a ministry? We?]
 ~2 Corinthians 2:16

I'm really liking 2 Corinthians. I think I'll study a bit deeper into it. :-) The verse above is a bit bittersweet because I have personally seen it and felt it. Being a Christian isn't always easy. People will dislike you, just because of it. Then there's others that are drawn to you, because of it. Love, Compassion, and being truly Christlike is not a bad thing. Don't lose the good fight, just because someone has knocked you down. Dust yourself off and shine His love. You are not alone :-)

We are hedged in (pressed) on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but not cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair;We are pursued (persecuted and hard driven), but not deserted [to stand alone]; we are struck down to the ground, but never struck out and destroyed; 
~2 Corinthians 4:8-9
