The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on WND Faith
What do you see when you look in the mirror? When I look in the mirror, I see flaws. But when God looks at you and me, he sees things differently. We see weakness; God sees potential. We see what we are; God sees what we can be. We see the past; God sees the future.
The Bible tells us about a man named Gideon who had no visible potential whatsoever. Yet he became a bona fide world changer. In fact, Gideon’s name is included in Hebrews 11, which is known as the Hall of Faith. Gideon had a weak beginning and, quite frankly, not the best ending, either. But he made it into an exclusive list of courageous men and women who put their faith into action.
When we look at a guy like Gideon, this gives hope to people who are more on the ordinary side. Godpost was originally published on this site
