Hardships that lead to true greatness

Suffer all things for Me, sayeth the Lord.
Do not take only the good without suffering the hardships of the Christian faith.
Do not pick and choose what you will do for Me, sayeth The Lord.
Do all things that I have instructed you to do.
Come let us reason together sayeth The Lord.
Does the easy pathway have reward and are those who do easy things remembered?
No, we remember those who accomplish difficult tasks and who have gone where no man has gone before.
It is the difficult things and the hardships that lead to true greatness in the Kingdom of Heaven.
All the great Saints of remembrance knew the pathway they followed was going to have hardships, yet without hesitation they follow it by faith.
Have faith in God.
