This question arises daily in our lives. Because we all want to get somewhere, to improve our lives, to enter into a better life, to meliorate the quality of our lives, to see the hard part of the world from a safer angle, to see the misery from above without participating suffering from it.
In other words, we all want to move somewhere, to have a better life and that’s why we strive all day, every day. And this is not a denial but a statement. It is not an obstacle, but it is a tool. The nature that the creator has made with the necessary elements for everyone, is full of transformations, transitions, changes, and once could say that without change there does not seem to be life.
This tool of our attraction and our will to enter somewhere, to move somewhere better, is the driving force for the issues of living faith. Every obstacle is an exercise for a new conquest, not a punishment.
This criterion was set by Christ Himself, who praised and rewarded His hard working partner, while He reserved not honor and rewards, but poverty and punishment for his clever but lazy partner.
