Whenever I leave the house I grab a book…
That way if I get stuck waiting somewhere I can redeem the time by reading.
The book I grabbed this morning happened to have a description of the Pilgrim’s voyage on the Mayflower.
As I read the account, I pondered how hard it must have been for 102 voyagers to spend two-months crossing the Atlantic, cramped in such a small boat with such crude conditions.
… And not only was there no wifi, there was not even a bathroom.
But they did it… in the words of the Mayflower Compact… “for the Glory of God” and “the Advancement of the Christian Faith.”
And this little bit of reading served as a good reminder for me:
Advancing God’s kingdom requires us to do hard things.
… things that are difficult and uncomfortable…
… but things that must be done to move God’s work forward.
So let’s overcome our desire to simply do what comes easy.
Let’s do something hard today!
And then tomorrow as well.
