Hardship is the only way to develop a quality character and a host of other must-haves for those preparing for the Kingdom Above. Easy days, they don't bring that. No, they bring the opposite. And hardship and battle go hand in hand. For the battle is what makes it hard.
But, enough said.
For if this is so, then is not the gift of hardship and battle greater than the gift of easy days?
And should not I crave the hardship and battle?
