"If you aspire to be a person of consolation,
if you want to share
the priestly gift of sympathy,
if you desire to go beyond
giving commonplace comfort
to a heart that is tempted,
and if you long to go through
the daily exchanges of life with
the kind of tact that never inflicts pain,
then you must be prepared
to pay the price for a costly education-
for like Christ,
you must suffer."
Frederick William Robertson
We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God.
This is from a devotional called,
that a dear friend just sent to me
because our family is going through
some hard physical challenges.
Thank you Nancy.
It is the small, personal acts of kindness
that warm my heart!
