INTRODUCTION. In this week’s lesson, we focus on why Christians so often find themselves in many trials and difficult circumstances. Paul’s letter to the believers in Corinth dealt with various problems that had arisen there. In II Corinthians chapter 11, he discusses the false teachers of that time. In chapter 12 from which our lesson comes, he talks about a man, no doubt himself, who was taken up to heaven. However, following that wondrous experience, Paul was given a physical malady, or ailment that he had to bear here on earth. Through it he learned of God’s enduring grace and how to find strength in times of weakness.
