Sometimes It Isn’t Easy
This devotional was written by Jim Burns

Love one another with brotherly affection; out do one another in showing honor. —Romans 12:10 RSV

No one ever said that living the Christian life would be easy. The following words help give us perspective.

IT IS NOT EASY
To apologize
To start over
To take advice
To be unselfish
To admit error
To face a sneer
To be charitable
To keep trying
To be considerate
To avoid mistakes
To endure success
To profit by mistakes
To forgive and forget
To think and then act
To keep out of a rut
To make the best of little
To subdue an unruly temper
To shoulder a deserved blame
BUT IT ALWAYS PAYS OFF

GOING DEEPER:

1. What makes it difficult for you to live out Romans 12:10 in your life? Which item on the list found in today's thought is most difficult for you to do?

2. What would be the pay off if you did live out Romans 12:10 today?
