A powerful thought came to my mind of how we can refuse to present ourselves as muscles of pleasure but instead should present ourselves as muscles of grief. That is indeed what the Apostle Paul did.
For in our faith, we are called to bear sacrifice. That is what we are turning the corner on when Jesus and God took on the radical project of suffering to redeem our world. To enter and bear into the suffering so that we could have muscles that could feel pleasure for eternity. But the problem with our society today is that it demands and desires the pleasure and satisfaction of a good time now but loses the perspective of eternity in their hearts.
