Following Jesus often means taking a difficult path instead of an easy path. It is always worth it to follow Jesus in the view of eternity, but often in the moment we wonder why we are taking the difficult route.
Why do we try to love show God's love when we are not loved in return? Why do we try to live at peace with all people when all people do not wish to be at peace with us?
It is not easy following Jesus, but it is always worth it.
