Jesus didn't come to be served. Jesus also didn't come to make our life easy or comfortable. Jesus doesn't shield us from the ugly realities of the world. Jesus helps us to deal with the crud that happens to us and around us. However, Jesus does save us from an eternal ugliness.
Lord, help me to realize that Your purpose is not to keep me from pain on this earth but to help me with the pain that is inevitably going to happen to me and those around me.
