Day #1273

June 26, 2017 

The descriptor for Jesus today - challenger. He challenges us in our comfort zones. He challenges us in our thoughts of what we think we need to be happy or content or joy-filled. He challenges us to think of others rather than just ourselves. He challenges us to love and serve our neighbor. He challenges us to think out of the box. He challenges us to trust, even when things are difficult and don’t go how we hope. 

Yes, in the midst of loving us, he also challenges us, giving deeper understanding to the old saying that, “Sometimes with God we are comforted in our affliction and sometimes afflicted in our comfort.”
