Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving, we get stronger and more resilient. (Steve Maraboli, behavioral scientist)
We may wish that things would be easier as we grow older and that our mistakes would be more easily corrected. But experience has shown it’s useless to ignore the realities of life. So, Maraboli’s observation can be very encouraging. The difficulties may still arise, but if we are diligent in working at it, we can overcome hard times by our stronger character and training.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. (Ephesians 6:10)
Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. (1 Corinthians 16:13)
