Eugene Peterson writes, “Our faith develops out of the most difficult aspects of our existence, not the easiest.”  Numerous verses and stories from Scripture back him up, and yet we work strenuously to avoid difficulty. We even pray that we would not have to face hardships. Sometimes I wonder if I really value my spiritual formation as much as my comfort. Is that true of you, too?
