To grow in faith, we need to be willing to “go against the grain”. It’s easier to “go with the flow”. We have comfort zones that we like to stay in, but it doesn’t require faith to live there. When we go against the grain of society — making decisions and going in directions that are not what the people around us believe is right, we meet with resistance. It’s not easy. It’s uncomfortable.
But that’s where Jesus is!
We should not be surprised by the resistance we get. We are going to encounter difficulties and possibly get “splinters” that hurt us. Remember that going against the grain of the world means you are closer to Jesus than those who choose to go with the flow of the world.
