Sometimes the right thing to do is not the easy thing to do.
A trip to the ER for me made me realize I need to take better care of my health. With my Preveza app, I could see the test results first hand, even the part where it describes me as “super morbidly obese” patient, as if that’s my superpower.
Just as Peter Parker didn’t want his superpower, I don’t want mine.
It’s not the best language to describe a patient, but the hospital has to put some label on, that’s what a hospital does, label a problem and address it. What would you rather have it save doubleplusunthin? So, I’ll deal with my “super morbidly obese” instead. Losing my “super status” will be hard. If it were easy, I’d have done it already.
The right thing to do isn’t always the easy thing to do in church work too.
I have yet to serve a church where evangelism and elder work were easy for members to do. But you can’t do it without love. Not the feeling kind of love, but loving as God loved us.
Churches, like individuals, gravitate towards what is easy.
Christ calls us to love as He has loved us, which is hard.
Yet, the one who calls us is faithful.
