“Whatever you do to the least of my brothers you do unto me.” Jesus Christ, King James version
Many of us tend to shy away from and avoid suffering, hardship, and pain. It is only natural since our bodies are constructed to desire pleasure and shun discomfort. It is our biological imperative.
Nevertheless sometimes it becomes necessary to override our limbic system base desires in order to attain a nobler goal. Forward thinking and the ability to contemplate abstract thoughts allows human beings to plan and execute complex strategies. This is the genesis of the great wealth that has been created that has lifted so many out of their default state of poverty. This is the enduring legacy of our forefathers.
The deferral of gratification is what separates the human being from the beast. You are part of a great human tradition.
The soul would have no rainbow, if the eyes had no tears.
