The price of trying to be better
No path towards being better is easy. Progress and change have dips and birth pains.
From a technical perspective, this separates the beginners from the masters. From a values perspective, this separates the hypocrites from the virtuous virtuosos.
And sometimes, the material rewards may not even be worth it. Oftentimes, the world can feel cold (if not downright absurd).
But when we find our authentic identity, purpose, and meaning, we have a better inspiration of who we ought to be. Acquiring that perspective is a gift that keeps on giving and makes life all the more worth living.
John 15:18-21. The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you.
