We live in an amazing world of technology. When you think about it, our phones, computers, tablets and nearly every app we can download have the same purpose—to make life easier. And we can all agree on one thing: easy is good. And, because we believe that easy is good, our brains also draw the natural conclusion that not easy is not good. In a lot of ways, that logic can save us hurt. But it’s not always true, is it? We’ve had experiences that were both difficult and good—like getting a job or raising a child. The other problem with our “easy is good” mantra is that it can often give us a distorted view of God. It can be tempting to assume that if we experience something not easy then it must be not good. And, if God allowed us to experience it, then maybe God is not good. But what if we’ve got it all wrong? What if difficult and good aren’t enemies? What if God can take something not easy and use it for our good? As we’ll discuss this week, Jesus’ closest followers experienced difficulties and discovered that the path to a better life story is rarely easy, but it’s always worth it.
