Something better

Royce Ogle writes powerfully about the persistent misconception that if a person becomes a Christian, believes and lives really well, that God will take away all problems. Here, in part, is Royce's answer:
One of the best Christians who ever lived was the Apostle Paul. He was beat up, run out-of-town, ship wrecked, and on and on. He had plenty of troubles including spending years in prison. He saw the big picture! He called his troubles “Light and momentary”. How is that for a good attitude?

So my friend, when the rain doesn’t come and the crop dries up, when you lose your job and your house, and Mom might not make it ’til tomorrow night, keep believing in God. Keep walking by faith. There is something better coming.

Milton, I think Royce might have mistaken me for you. Either way, you're a good man. God bless you richly.
