In Rom 12:1 and 2 we are encouraged to be transformed by the renewing of our minds in order to know what God’s good and perfect will is. We have to read and study God’s Word!
As we pursue growing towards Christlikeness, we should be prepared to face a variety of obstacles and challenges.
You must be prepared to persist through discouragement when there is a lack of appreciation in spite of your efforts to do what is right. There is no worthwhile alternative for doing the right thing. There are always alternatives, but they come at an unacceptable price.
Remember, we don’t get the marriage we wish for. We get the marriage we work for!
Also remember, God will honor your faithfulness.
“His master said to him: ‘Well done, good and faithful slave; you were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.” – Matthew 25:23.
Faithfulness is a sign of good character – Godly character.
