A cool quote I heard someone say on the radio:
"Sometimes training for greatness comes when we refrain from bitterness for not being promptly rewarded for our righteousness."
I identified with this. How easy it is to become bitter when I feel like am doing all the right things but struggle to see the results that I WANT. How selfish, but I can see that God still wants my obedience regardless and that I will be truly great in his eyes if I continue to stay faithful and gracious!
