The limbless man. A man who God has turned his back upon. A man who endures the laughing and pointing of others who simply don't understand. He's been told so many times that he has no worth, and now he's come to believe it. The limbless man.
Then, there comes another man: the circus master. The circus master sees others' worth with different eyes. He teaches the limbless man of his worth, and the limbless man comes to see what a special person he truly is.
You see, it is so easy for to look at other people and covet their talents, abilities, looks, and even possessions. We see our own selves as insignificant. But the Master, our Heavenly Father, sees more, and He wants us to see what He sees--the beauty that can come from ashes.
"But they're different from me."
"Yes, you do have an advantage. The greater the struggle, the more glorious the triumph."
