Do the More Difficult Thing

Using a slogan. Saying you believe in something. Posting it on social media. Being supportive of good things and condemning bad things. That’s the easy stuff.

Actually practicing what you preach. Living in line with personal (and biblical) convictions. Having a private persona that’s the same as your public persona. Doing what truly helps someone else, even when no one else sees it and no one else cares. That’s the difficult stuff.

Each day, you will be faced with plenty of opportunities and decisions. Some will be easy and make you feel good. Some will be difficult (even painful), but they’ll make a difference.

What do you do when faced with all the opportunities each day presents? In most cases, do the more difficult thing. It’s usually the thing most worth doing.

“In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who [chose to do the most difficult thing of all, because he said we were worth it]” (Philippians 2:5-8).

We'd love to hear from you.
