“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”
Life can be very hard, painful and bitter. The toils, stresses and worries of life can wear us out. Why is life so hard sometimes? It can be so tough that we become hard and cold, we become unkind, unloved and unconcerned about things and people around us. But take heart, as Christ has overcome this world and has sacrificed his life for us! His love can make us soft, sweet and beautiful.
