But Joseph said to them, “It is as I said to you. You are spies. By this you shall be tested” Genesis 42:14-15
Spiritual commitments make people strong and weak for faithfulness and truth. Stronger people are always tempted by the weak. Commitment keeps strong away from falling in temptation of weak. Weak have evil slandering mouth, evil staring eyes, evil attacking hands and evil walking legs to provoke strong to engage in their evil traits. Strong’s battle is against evil traits of the weak, but not against weak, so strong doesn’t act like weak. In due season, weak realizes they have fallen short of spiritual commitment whenever they remember acting foolishly towards strong. Consequently weak starts acting wisely towards strong. Strong knows weak must be loved, forgiven but not trusted until tested and found faultless. It takes many years of hard-work to become strong. Strong knows weak ones still have a long way to go for becoming strong in spiritual commitment.
