Billy Graham was quoted once to say, “Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has”. Those that face adversity can be of good cheer because the hard times prepare one with the advantage of lessons learned that can lead to spectacular achievement in the future.
In Chapter 10 of Matthew, we read about Jesus giving instructions and preparing the Twelve Disciples. To be a part of God’s team, it requires some discomfort at times but there are huge eternal dividends. Today, I’m praying that I see myself as a valuable part of God’s team; ready to give up a little comfort to do my part in His overall plan.
