Carry Your Cross

Sometimes we think our lot is peculiarly hard, and we compare it withthe lot of this or that other person, and wish we had his cross instead of our own. But we do not know what other people's crosses really are. If we did, we might not want to exchange. The cross that seems woven of flowers, if we put it on our shoulders, we might find filled with sharp thorns under the flowers! The cross of gold that seems so bright we would find so heavy that it would crush us! The easiest cross for each one to bear is his own!

"If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
- Luke 9:23

- J. R. Miller
