The Apostle Paul said to the Corinthians “my strength is made perfect in weakness” referring to the sufficiency of God’s grace. There are many other passages in the Bible about the connection between weakness and strength. Is today’s quote one of them?
“A weak man knows the value of strength, knows the value of power.” – Bible or Not?

Yes, today’s quote comes for the movie Captain America: The First Avenger. One of the qualities of the main character Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, was that he had been bullied and experienced weakness first hand. And even though he had been pushed and beaten up, he never gave up. And once he was transformed into Captain America, he never abused his power and strength for personal gain. Captain America is a very entertaining movie that highlights the value of strong moral character. A typical good versus evil story, where good triumphs over evil, but at great cost to the hero.
