Hard Teachings

In jesus' time, many did not want to hear the hard teachings of Christ. Many don't want to hear them today. We may be among the many! Nevertheless, God has a way of teaching hearts that are not open and ears that don't want to hear. To those who refuse to listen and ponder God's message, God often gives a lesson in life. What we can't learn from the head, we learn from experience. If you are learning hard lessons today, be grateful as they will stand you in good stead. God does not let any experience go to waste. He will bring good out of this. Believe it, hope for it, and move on in His grace and as much joy as you can muster. God is making you into gold.
