We are all faced with a series of great opportunities – brilliantly disguised as insolvable problems. (John Gardner, 20th century novelist and literary critic)

Sometimes we don’t recognize an opportunity that’s right in front of us because, as Gardner suggests, it may be “disguised” as a problem that we don’t know how to handle. When we learn how to address those problems, we may discover that we have been given an unusual opening to accomplish something unique and beneficial.

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity (Ephesians 5:15-17).
