Posts Tagged ‘suffering do the right thing’

My Grandmother’s constant counsel was: “Do the right thing!”

Doing the right thing is easy when it brings immediate joy and blessings.  

Doing the right thing is more difficult when it is no more than a seed, which requires planting, watering, feeding, and waiting for the bloom of blessing to come.

Doing the right thing is most difficult when it brings immediate suffering and difficulty.

Peter wrote: “It is better to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.” (1 Peter 3:17)

Peter encourages us to accept suffering while doing the right thing as part of God’s wise and sovereign plan for our life. 

“Our peace in life is found in humbly enduring suffering rather than in being free from it.  He who knows how to suffer will enjoy the greater peace.” (Thomas Kempis)
