No matter who you are, where you live. or what your circumstances may be, there are always going to be some things that you just don’t want to do. And the more of those you have, the harder life gets.
Some people have jobs they hate. Some people are in marriages they hate. Some people … well, you get the drift. And even if, overall, your situation is pretty agreeable, there are still going to be some things about your life that you just don’t enjoy.

Everything you say and everything you do should be done for Jesus your Lord. And in all you do, give thanks to God the Father through Jesus.
That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
