Embrace inconvenience

Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer. 2 Cor. 1:6-7

We are in this together. Sometimes our pain is the very thing that equips us to offer comfort. Sometimes the fact that we are currently in a comfortable position makes us perfect candidates to render aid. The nature of community is that we are going to inconvenience one another.

Lord, help me know it’s worth the trouble, especially when it is trouble.
