We need to stop saying “The Lord will never give you more than you can handle,” because this isn’t true. If it were, you could be completely self sufficient, never need another, and his counsel to be charitable would be, not only impractical, but indicate that people were completely at fault through their own actions for not being able to handle what he gave them. The blind would be guilty for tripping, the deaf for not hearing, and we know this isn’t the case. He says he won’t ask anything of you that you can’t accomplish, and this is in part because he’s prepared the way, but don’t make the mistake of thinking other people aren’t part of the preparation. He might indeed give you more than YOU can handle, but it’s not more than You, your friends, and the others he will send can handle together.
More Than You Can Handle

This blog is about my life and how I see things. I write, I think, I dream, I do. I used to write a lot of fantasy until I realized I was living one. I was married to a deaf-blind Hobbit in a realm we created together. He passed away in 2014, but our life was interesting enough I think you might like it too. View all posts by Noelle Campbell
One thought on “More Than You Can Handle”
Yes. “You” is definitely the collective in this instance.
