Take not the easy path
“These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye may have peace. In the world ye have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
S. John 16:33 RV1895 https://bible.com/bible/1922/jhn.16.33.RV1895
We have such a loving Lord. Others try to convince us of how good something is by telling us how easy it is. Jesus is very honest and to the point. Not choosing the easy path, the world, will create trouble for us in the future.
However, whatever trouble the world holds for us, Christ encourages us. He has overcome the world, and so can we. By overcoming the world and focusing on loving and praising Him, we overcome the world as well.
