Before us lies two pathways.
One pathway seems to lead to hardships and sufferings and the possibility
of personal loss.
The other pathway seems to lead to an easy life with much personal gain.
The choice is ours which pathway we shall go.
Many they are who will automatically chose the easy road.
This is what Lot did when faced with the choice between the fertile green
valleys or the dry higher ground.
Abraham choose the more difficult choice.
There is no reward in Heaven for living a life of ease.
Suffering brings much reward.
Jesus choose the way of suffering for us.
