faithfulness - A.K.A. tough obedience

Thought for today:

When you don't want to do something God-honoring and healthy that requires hard work you don't feel like putting in, be careful that you don't seek out others who will only affirm what you're already thinking. There's always someone to tell you you're right and the concept is crazy.

Nonetheless, follow Jesus. He's always been wiser than anything we could come up with... even though we often convince ourselves that we'll just slide off the other way and pretend like we didn't hear Him.
Then Jesus said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me." (Luke 9:23)
