    "The GOD of Hope!" All our immaturity and stupidity can be corrected and healed, so that we truly become "A Man (or Woman) after His own heart." Our own individual weakness and inadequacy is the very thing by which the Lord's strength is made perfect: especially in showing the world, that His grace has nothing to do with men's estimations and opinions about us. Jesus is our HOPE, and our Victory!

    Verses 1 and 2 shows that Christians with more experience should be more patient with those who were not yet firmly rooted in the truth. We should consider others in the choices we make.
