The thorn in Paul’s side (chapter 12)

Paul said that a thorn was put into his side, a messenger of Satan, to harass him.  Paul appealed to the Lord, but the Lord replied that his grace was sufficient for him.  The power of the Lord was made manifest in weakness.  Thus, Paul was content to boast about his weakness so that the power of God would shine.  He accepted his insults, his hardships, and his persecutions to show the Lord’s strength in his weaknesses.
