If something is hard, does that mean God is not in it?
Someone once told me, "Doing the will of God is like a hot knife through butter." I'm not sure what Bible they were reading, but that hasn't been my Christian experience for half a century. Unfortunately, much of what is preached from today's pulpits emphasizes all the benefits that are ours as believers without mentioning the cost involved. In advertising we call this, "Giving them the streets of gold." It captures listeners and fills churches, but does it make disciples as Jesus commanded?
Part of being a follower of Christ is to do good, even if it's hard. This book teaches us, from the scriptures and by personal experience, how we can be a more effective "do gooder."
