The true man is revealed in difficult times. So when trouble comes, think of yourself as a wrestler whom God, like a trainer, has paired with a tough young buck. For what purpose? To turn you into Olympic-class material. But this is going to take some sweat to accomplish.Epictetus, Discourses I, 24.1-2
I know a lot of you are scared. I know a lot of you are frustrated by events that you had not fault over.
Maybe some of you keep asking yourselves “Why.”
Maybe you were laid off because of this pandemic/recession.
Maybe you are a small business owner and are struggling to make ends meet.
Maybe you’re sick.
Maybe you’re tired.
Maybe you’re sick and tired.
