What If? – Acts 14:21-22

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Acts 14:21-22

“We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” That’s a phrase many people don’t like hearing. We must realize that we are not guaranteed an easy life. Oh, it’s easy in the sense that His instructions are not hard. As he said, His burden is light. However, what we receive from the world or even from people who claim the faith but refuse to walk in it, well, that’s a completely different story.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!
