When Jesus called those first disciples to “come follow me” I doubt they knew all that would entail. It’s not an easy road to walk, but it is one where there is joy in the journey! Ironically, the one who denies their self, takes up their cross and follow’s Jesus, will find joy in this life of sacrifice, while the one who does everything to fill their life with the pleasures of this world will find it empty. Always seeking but never finding. I trust you will choose the harder path with the greater reward.
