MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow
strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.” -Peter Marshall
Hi, John Maxwell here. Welcome to Minute with Maxwell. I'm going to give you another statement of strength as we help you all this time, kind of work yourself through the difficult times. Peter Marshall said, ‘When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.’ You see, Peter Marshall knew something about you and me, and that is that we long for better times, easier times. We really don't care for adversity. We really don't care for difficulty. We say, ‘Oh, wouldn't it be nice if all those problems and all those issues were behind me and no longer did I have to wear those or carry those or have that as a burden.’ Well, if you would like to have easier times, raise your hand with me. In fact, get both hands up. We all want to have easier times. But let me give you the difference between immaturity and maturity. Immaturity basically says, ‘What is best for me, I really don't want’. Maturity says, ‘What is best for me, I do want.’
You see, maturity understands that adversity and difficulty will give us certain inward strengths that the ease of life won't give. So, just listen to the words of Peter Marshall. Follow them. Don't long for the easy road; take the difficult road.
Thanks for joining me today on Minute with Maxwell.
