Entitlement is not laziness and it is not greed. Entitlement is not wanting things and disliking the hard things. Entitlement is a mindset that is learned. We are not born entitled. We learn to be entitled. The entitlement mindset does not see the value in long term efforts. Entitled people have been conditioned to value only those things that come immediately, with little effort or time lapse. If it doesn't come immediately, then it must be wrong or there must be a better way. Unfortunately, entitlement is a result of well meaning parents and teachers and coaches who don't want their kids to go through the pain that they had to go through. Entitlement is a result of love. God obviously has a different view of what is important. God loves us more than anyone and because He loves us, he realizes we need discipline more than problem free path.
Lord, help me to realize that discipline benefits me more than comfort and that holding others to a high standard is better for them than making their path easier.
