I really would.

Surely 'He' could make it easier???



   There is another way to look at that. Ir may not be a God making it difficult for you. It may be you who's making it difficult for you. Which would put you in the majority.

   If we are not prepared to be true to ourselves, then everything gets skewed as a result. The struggle is how to get from where we are to the place of being true to ourselves. There are, after all, many pressures to do otherwise.

   And the opening words of "The Road Less Travelled" are ,'Life is hard'. It's just that we are liable to make it harder. And if we can find another to blame for our travails, well, that lets us off the hook.

   the words 'light' and bushel', never mind 'talents' and 'parables', spring to mind.

    The massive advantage of 'God' is to relieve us of a load of responsibility. However, I've said stuff like that before, and peoiple tend to make for the exit post haste. Which I understand.    Often, I-I-I-I would rather someone else took responsibility for more of me, too.
