The best route may surprise you
Sometimes people avoid the best route because it looks hard. They don't realize that other routes are just as hard as the best way to go. Sometimes you have to pay the price up front, sometimes at the end. But as long as each costs about the same, you may as well take the best (and what looks to be the hardest) route.
If you want to reflect more on this topic, watch the video below and see Isaiah 53 and Matthew 26:36-44.
God, thank you for encouraging us to take paths that are worthwhile, even though they look hard. We praise you. Amen.
