Critical Thought #1: Power of Testimonies

In order to have a testimony, you must first be put through a test!

For the longest time, I always wondered why people reacted so emotionally when they stood before an audience and gave a personal testimony. I could empathize with them in what they had gone through, but I couldn’t quite relate directly with it. It wasn’t until I found myself in the middle of something that wasn’t just for a day, but a two year plus period that I finally got it. That is why the derivative in the word testimony is the word test. In order to appreciate something out of life, you have to sacrifice a little bit of yourself in the midst of it. Put me through the test!
