Choosing Glory over Comfort: A Lesson in Perseverance and Growth

·

My beloved sons,
I wanted to share an important lesson with you, one that can shape the way you approach challenges and setbacks in life. It’s a lesson about choosing between seeking temporary comfort or striving for true glory.

Life is full of disappointments and setbacks. There will be moments when things don’t go as planned, and it’s natural to feel disappointed. In those moments, you have a choice to make. Do you want an answer that merely soothes your disappointment, providing temporary relief but keeping you stagnant? Or do you want to pursue something greater, something that can only be achieved through perseverance and resilience?

The first option, seeking an answer that soothes your disappointment, may offer immediate comfort. It can be tempting to take the easy way out, to find explanations or justifications that make you feel better in the moment. But it’s important to remember that these answers often provide only temporary relief. They don’t lead to true growth or lasting fulfillment.

On the other hand, choosing the path that leads to glory is not an easy one. It means embracing the fire, the challenges, and the difficulties that come your way. It means facing adversity head-on, learning from it, and using it as fuel for personal growth. The glory that comes through the fire is not instant or effortless. It requires determination, perseverance, and the willingness to push through discomfort.

My beloved sons, I encourage you to choose the path of true glory. Embrace the challenges that come your way, for they hold the potential for growth, strength, and ultimate success. When faced with disappointment, don’t settle for answers that provide temporary comfort. Instead, use that disappointment as motivation to rise above, to learn, and to strive for something greater.

Remember, true glory is not found in avoiding challenges, but in facing them with courage and resilience. Embrace the fire, for it is through the flames that you will discover your true potential and achieve greatness.

With all my love and support,
Dad
