10 Bible Characters Not to be Like

“Each time he said, ‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Everybody makes mistakes in their lives, but God can work despite those mistakes. He even redeems sin. God knows that I am weak and works in me anyway. In fact, He works best through my weaknesses if I humble myself and admit them instead of covering them up.

Aren’t you glad that the Bible is full of real human beings that made mistakes at times but also acted out of faith in God at other times? These people changed their attitudes by learning to trust their God and you can too.
