EFFORT OR ENTITLEMENT
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt
John inherited a million dollars,
Steve earned it.
Sarah lives with a daily disability,
Karen enjoys perfect health.
Jim grew up in an oppressive environment.
Lynn enjoyed ease and stability.
Mike has fought with deep depression most of his life.
Jill has always been happy-go-lucky.
The individual most likely, in these scenarios, to undergo
Is the one who ….
Endures the exhausting …
Character is fostered in the furnace of affliction,
It’s not pleasant,
But it is …
Life changing good.
The thing that requires the most effort
In your life …
Will become the greatest character developer
Of your life.
Learn from it,
Grow from it,
Trust the hand …
That sent you it.
God will be faithful
The end of it.
“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you,
always having all sufficiency in all things,
may have an abundance for every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:8
