Who Encouraged You To Expect Any Better?

Richard Baxter:

What keeps us under trouble is either we do not expect what God has promised, or we expect what he did not promise. We are grieved at crosses, losses, wrongs of our enemies, unkind dealings of our friends, sickness, or for contempt and scorn in the world. But who encouraged you to expect any better?

We expect life to be easy. God never said it would be. Thankfully, though, He did promise to be with us.
